Reflecting on our eight years at BSM, we realize there is not one defining moment that sums up our family’s experience here, but rather a compilation of wonderful small everyday moments and interactions within the BSM community.
I attended the World Congress on Lasallian Education last week in Mexico City. It was an amazing experience and one I won’t soon forget. The purpose of the Congress was to discuss, analyze and share perspectives on the future of Lasallian education on a global level. There were 600 participants from around the world, representing 41 different countries.
The summer before our kids started at BSM, we already felt like we were a part of the community. My son Matthew, an incoming 9th grader, was encouraged to attend BSM summer lacrosse practices even before he had stepped foot inside the school. I remember it was late June and I dropped him off for a two-hour practice on the turf field. I was anxious. I didn't know what to expect, and I didn't know if he would fit in.
I have experienced and been a part of a plethora of amazing activities, clubs and sports at Benilde-St. Margaret’s, one of the most influential clubs being Link Crew. Link Crew is a program offered to students once they reach their junior year of high school. The program helps incoming freshmen adjust from junior high to high school and assists incoming transfer students.

Amphitheater and State of the Art Science Classrooms Open for Second Semester
After breaking ground on our $8 million Imagine. Innovate. Inspire. capital campaign in June of 2018, three state-of-the art science classrooms and an amphitheater style performance and collaboration space opened up to Red Knight faculty, staff and students ahead of schedule on Tuesday, January 22, 2019 – just in time for the first day of the second semester.
Change is a requirement in any school that is serious about their mission in an ever-changing world. Our history at Benilde-St. Margaret’s reinforces that very notion. It is seen in the birth of St. Margaret’s Academy and Benilde High School to the formation of Benilde-St. Margaret’s. It is apparent in the adoption of college credit opportunities and the investment in educational technologies.
