BDHS students are different in a good way. Teachers are chill, yet demand a lot. Admin helps students out so do teachers. Some good clubs. You can tell teachers n leaders care and will help you.

Too many racist students, also teachers. Staff needs to pay attention to that and also on the teachers. Thankfully, not all staff are like that.
