BHS has really caring teachers, lots of activities for students to be involved in, very good administration and is a fantastic place to be now that it is no longer overcrowded. I am so pleased with the changes in this school over the last 2 years, I would recommend it to any family.

Several individuals have hit the nail on the head. This schools administration is very top heavy and in goose step with the good old boy system. Due process for the protection of the student is non existent except on paper. The athletic director (see comment above). Academically, if you as a student ...  Read more

This school may offer AP classes and many sports, but the teachers and especially the teachers do not care about the students. Standardized tests are the primary concern for administrators, not student happiness.
