The Bowie Center

Where learning is as individual as your child



    Ideal teachers are those who use

  themselves as bridges over which they

  invite their students to cross, then having

  facilitated their crossing, joyfully collapse,

   encouraging them to make

  bridges of their own.


 - Nikos Kazantzakis

Here's what some of our parents are saying:


“Before our son, Jack, went to Bowie we were told that we 'need to be realistic about his future'. At that time, educators said that he would
not be able to do math or comprehend what he read. I met with Sherri Spain and she openly accepted Jack into her Day School program at Bowie. Jack has now been at Bowie for two years. He is reading well, comprehending, and doing math well. He has friends and absolutely loves school. The teachers are positive, encouraging and are quick to point out his amazing progress. He is playing the drums and piano as well. Bowie has changed our lives as a family. We no longer have the stress of meaningless homework and endless struggles. Jack finishes his homework every day at school and comes home with a smile! I am truly grateful each day for the Bowie Day School.”

"We cannot imagine being luckier than finding Bowie for Ben when we relocated to Memphis. The tutoring centric approach and warm, caring environment is exactly want he needed to thrive and grow. The people and approaches have helped him become more social, and academically we continue to be amazed with what he is able to achieve. Bowie has become part of our family."

"My son Alex has flourished at Bowie. I cannot say enough good things about this school. Not only is he experiencing the best teaching he has ever known- but he is also enjoying the loving spirit that permeates throughout Bowie. In two years he will be graduating from Bowie with pride, knowing that he has succeeded in every way possible.   I simply say 'thank you' to the entire Bowie staff.”

"The Bowie experience has changed our lives for the better! Our son used to dislike school and have negative feelings about his academic abilities.  Since we have have been a Bowie family our son has become happy and is eager to learn!  He now realizes what we knew all along, that he is a very smart kid!  Not only does he enjoy going to school, he looks forward to Mondays (or a vacation's end) so that he can return to school! We're looking forward to another great year at Bowie!"

"As parents of a rising superstar high school student, we have been tested and tried on every angle possible, I think.... Our daughter has grown tremendously, both educationally and socially. These are the times and relationships that will springboard her and others into the future, and we thank Bowie for being the right place to be!"

“I just wanted to thank Bowie for helping Wes mature as a student. He's taking more responsibility for doing his homework. He still
doesn't want to study for tests (he still needs to grow in that area), but he has taken responsibility for doing his work and managing his time much better. This is a big step for Wesley. Thank you, Sherri,  for helping him to achieve this level of performance.”




“The staff at Bowie makes learning fun and exciting! My son has excelled more in Math this year than ever before. Bowie is an excellent learning environment.”

“Bowie is a special place. Each staff member has a unique talent and works to reach each child's potential. We are so thankful to Sherri and the staff for helping Ezra feel confident and blossom this year.”
