The beautiful Hamburge Theater is part of the school’s fine arts center. Typically, three major drama productions and several other events are held in the theater each year.

Red Knight fans can stock up on apparel and other items at the Spirit Shop, which adjoins the cafeteria.
 Cafeteria.jpg The cafeteria serves a variety of breakfast and lunch options, including "Pure Health" items—those that meet guidelines for total fat content, calories from saturated fat, and sodium and cholesterol levels.

Connected to the senior high, BSM’s junior high is located in a separate wing and maintains a different daily schedule so junior and senior high students are not passing in the halls all together. All BSM junior and senior high students have their own locker for storing books, coats, etc.
