Read what parents are saying about Bastrop High School
I have sadly attended Bastrop high school for 4 years now, and I am sorry if you are planning to enroll your child at this school. Walking down the halls of Bastrop High you can see the leaking roofs and broken windows throughout. Your lucky if you enter a restroom that does not have some sort of malfunction or vandalism in it. However the integrity of the school is not all that matters because the staff should be the most critical, yet Bastrop High school fails to deliver on this also. Besides the few teachers who actually enjoy to do there job and do it correct the rest of the teachers seem to rather move, or quite when dealing with the plague of stupidity that travels in the school. Teachers being fired for soliciting drugs or teachers quitting due to not enough pay is common. Another thing that is common is the good old gas leaks or drug test, which seem to be the only thing reliable at Bastrop

Please read this if your children will be transferring from another state. This is not the school you want your children to go to. If your child takes the regular classes, not very many teachers are dedicated to bastrop high and will not go the lengths they should. If they are an AP student, the classes are not rigorous enough. I can count on one hand the amount of good teachers I've had, and I've had about 20 teachers during my time here. Also, if you have a student much smarter than belongs in the district, the school will lack in effort to supplement your child's needs, trying to shove them in whatever class they think is best and taking weeks to get back to parents. If your child struggles in school, the teachers will not exceed anything past what they are paid for to help, your child will struggle more. For children that are leaders and are not affected by others behavior, this school will cause unnecessary stress, and if they are a follower, there are way too many behavior issues (drugs, smoking, being disrespectful, and immaturity) that will most likely bid the worst traits for your child. The school had no idea how to communicate with parents or students unless they want money. A great sum of school funding goes to sports, while other programs barely have a large enough budget for one semester. This school is notorious for its high pregnancy rate, and is a closed campus because the kids act outrageously and cannot be trusted to leave. Their academic standards for what they believe makes a good classroom is based on saying the same routine everyday that does not work and having kids without phones, when it should require so much more. Some teachers don't even pay attention to students, when you ask them questions they give you totally unrelated answers. There are shattered windows everywhere from students with anger problems. I am suprised this is a school for the average Public and not for delinquents. I hope you consider relocating to a nearby town if you are moving for a job. If you must live in bastrop, I am very sorry ahead of time how much bhs will dissapointed you.

I have worked at BHS for over 20 years and have seen many changes. Currently we are an innovative, college and career driven, public high school with a very hard-working, caring staff. There are many opportunities for students to be involved and participate if they so choose.

I think that everyone should know that Bastrop High School provides a safe learning environment for students. BHS gives students ample opportunities to participate in extra-curricular activities. The school clubs are active and strive to create an authentic student interest in the club and community. As the school has a lower student enrollment (due to an additional high school in the district recently) I believe there will be opportunities to grow in areas other than enrollment numbers. There is an opportunity to create a great high school.

I have been very pleased with Bastrop High School. I have three children that graduated from BHS. The education they received has allowed them to pursue their goals at major universities here in Texas. Two of my children have earned their Bachelors and landed wonderful jobs in cities of their choice. In a month, the third will earn an MBA.
