This school has a bad grading system and ridiculous standards that they grade by. Only about half of the teachers actually do their job. I am EXTREMELY disappointed.

We love BGHS! So happy to have 2 students there this year! We chose BGHS instead of our home school. If a student/parent shows initiative and asks for help, it's always available. The only thing that prevents me from giving them 5 stars is the grading system. They are now doing standards based grades ...  Read more

The principal is proud to be a part of the school, and he often goes around the campus ...  Read more

I am proud to say I have been a part of an A+ School of Excellence. Recently returning to BGHS as an employee (I am alumni) has been an incredible experience.

This school is quite amazing. I have gone there since mid-freshman year and I have enjoyed every minute. Just today, I took part in graduating the ACE plus program, offered by GCC through Goldwater, and a couple of our counselors went to it. I wasn't sure, if others school counselors were there, but ...  Read more
