School Reviews

  • Recommended April 05, 2010 - I attended BHS as a PSEO student, meaning I took my class at the community college, while I was enrolled at BHS. I would not recommend sending your student to BHS. The guidance personal was not the best, she forgot to give me papers, and she was unpleasant to talk with. Seeing that I went to LCCC I wore flip flops, and had to stop at BHS, before I said anything, the assistance principal scolded me. I had to explain to him that I was coming from LC and I do not know the school rules because I do not take classes there. He was very rude and disrespectful. He did not even ask if I was a student or not, he only assumed. The three times I set foot on the campus was an unpleasant experience. - Posted by Student/Alumni
