Students are admitted to BMS without regard to race, creed, gender, national origin or religious beliefs.
Applicants to all levels are evaluated on the basis of their academic abilities and willingness to conform to the school rules and regulations in addition to the interview and the scores obtained in the entrance exam.
The entrance exam is divided into three parts, Arabic, English/French and Mathematics for students applying to Grades 2/CE1 till Grade 8/4ème. As of Grade 9/3ème, in addition to the aforementioned subjects in the entrance exam, applicants are also examined in the science subjects.

For the candidates applying to the early childhood education and Grade 1/CP do not sit for the entrance exam, instead they are only interviewed. Priority is given to those who meet the criteria for acceptance who apply early.
The School informs the parents of the results of the entrance exam within 2 weeks of its placement.
The pupil – teacher ratio question has for long been debated and since a large number of students in a class no doubt impede individualized instruction and attention, B.M.S. has adopted the policy of accommodating only 25 students in a class.
