Motivation
Boys don’t value
pleasing adults but
rather raising their
status in the sight of
other boys. (Sax 25)
Communication and
Relationships
For males, conversation is
the way you negotiate your
status in the group and
keep people from pushing
you around… Activities,
doing things together, are
central. Just sitting and
talking is not an essential
part of friendship. They're
friends with the boys they
do things with" (Tannen
95)
The BOMLA House System is a
brotherhood within the Brotherhood
that offers each BOMLA student an
opportunity to motivate, compete
and be accountable to his brothers.

BOMLA has superior
parent involvement. They
support their child’s
education, school events,
activities and attend parent
conferences.
Friends of BOMLA’s focus is to
close the funding gap between
available school district funding
and the ambitious and creative
opportunities that students need
and deserve.
We focus on “friendraising” and
fundraising for the enrichment of
BOMLA students, professionals
and programs.
