At BAMS, both students and staff members are organized into teams of 7th and 8th graders. Core teams, both students and teachers, are identified as Team Canis Major, Team Leo, Team Draco, and Team Taurus, named after constellations. Students in each of the core teams share a common group of core teachers—English, math, science, social studies and, as appropriate, receive the services of Academic Support or Special Education. Core teams loop, meaning that they teach the same group of students for two years, beginning in their 7th grade year and continuing with these students through the end of their 8th grade year.
