Who We Are
Thank you for your interest in BFSMS! We know that there are so many schools from which to choose and the decision can be complicated and stressful. Allow us to take that stress away as we explain who we are and why this is the right school for your child.
The Buckner Fanning School at Mission Springs (BFSMS) is unlike any other school in San Antonio. We are incredibly proud of our students and faculty, who make BFSMS the exceptional school that it is. Evidence of this is our Stanford Test Scores, which show our students are performing an average of 3 grade levels ahead in Math and Reading! Here are a few things that contribute to this kind of success:
We are a small school, enabling us to offer small class sizes to ensure each student has individualized attention and can learn in their own optimal way. Our rigorous curriculum paired with our seasoned and dedicated teachers results in students performing an average of 3-grade levels above their current grade. We educate the whole child, offering STEM as well as Fine Arts to help students become well-rounded individuals.
With our Nondenominational Christian Education, we embrace students from a variety of faiths. Through Bible study and daily Chapel, prayer and studying beliefs, we help students grow closer to God through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. An added benefit is our beautiful campus, which allows students to connect with nature within and as they move from class to class.
BFSMS is conveniently located at the intersection of Canyon Golf Road and Wilderness Oak in the heart of Hill Country. We provide a safe, orderly and encouraging school atmosphere for students in grades Pre-K 3 through 8th grade.
Our daily mission here on campus is to promote a lifetime desire for learning, equipping our students with the tools necessary to help them shape and better the world in which they live. We are committed to educating the whole child, using a combination of Core Knowledge, Singapore Math, STEM, Fine Arts, and Christian Education. As a part of educating the whole child, we recognize that positive self-esteem rises through self-respect as result of hard work, accomplishments, respect for others, and sincere encouragement from the faculty and staff. We consider this piece to be an integral part of our education and are dedicated to our students and their families to ensure we are delivering the best education and most positive experience possible.
We are excited to share our school with you! Please contact us to schedule a tour to learn more and experience BFSMS first hand.
Your Child's Success is Our Mission.
