• School Mission: 

    The mission of B.E.S.T. (Business, Engineering, Science and Technology) is to provide a caring, collaborative and rigorous single-gender environment where the community of learners empowers scholars to be college and career ready.
    School Vision:
    Our vision is to create a high-performing single-gender exemplar that produces transformational leaders who contribute to the community.  The vision of B.E.S.T. Academy High School is to facilitate the development of a community of learners who are globally competitive leaders.
     Our Goal:

    The Business, Engineering, Science, and Technology (B.E.S.T.) Academy High School at the Benjamin S. Carson Educational Complex will espouse the values of a solid work ethic, good citizenship, and a sense of morality that supports the community.  B.E.S.T. will stand firm on the belief that students deserve a quality education that will propel them regardless of the path that they may choose.  An education at B.E.S.T. Academy High School will focused on the development of the total student, preparing them for life, college, a commitment to community and a concern for the global society.  B.E.S.T. will be designed to align with students’ strengths and interests to allow for real-world connections.


    Through the single-gender structure, B.E.S.T. Academy High School at Ben S. Carson will strive to significantly shape its students into well-rounded young men who are prepared to meet current and future demands that are inevitable in an ever-changing global society.  As one of the first single-gender high schools, coupled with the small learning communities environment design, B.E.S.T. is destined to be more effective in preparing our students for the post-secondary opportunities of today and tomorrow.

     Small Learning Communities:
    In order to be as effective as possible the Business Engineering Science and Technology (B.E.S.T.) Academy High School is comprised of two Small Learning Communities: Business and Entrepreneurship and Engineering, Science and Technology
    The Small Learning Communities are designed to be 21st Century Learning Centers where students receive a world-class education and graduate with more effective options for lifelong success – whether they choose to attend college or enter the work force. Research shows that high school students learn better in smaller, more personalized settings.
