I have sent my three boys mostly to private school, but my youngest is now attending BHS. It is a fantastic school. The teachers have been outstanding, and there are a plethora of options for coursework. My son is taking 5 AP classes as a junior and is likely to take 5 more than a senior. That's not an option at many schools. His coaches have also been terrific. The coursework is rigorous and thoughtful; the teachers are knowledgeable (okay, and demanding), and these kids are very ready for college. On the road where I live there are 10 BHS graduates, all of whom graduated from the school over the past four years and all of whom were well prepared for college and excelled or are excelling in college. In comparison with my children's experience at their private schools, there is really no contest, BHS is definitely as good or better in every respect. This is now my third time as a high school parent, and out of all the schools my kids have attended, I genuinely think that BHS is the best. Contrary to the other reviewers'' experiences, I would give high marks to the administration. Counselors are thoughtful and attentive and the administration communicates with the parent body. I'm a huge fan of this school.

This school has seriously gone down hill since Balanda was made principal this school did not prepare me for college in any way and something needs to be done. Blender is soft.

The HS has serious issues as things have gotten worse over the years. Too many things to list as the place has become a tremendous dissapointment. We had to pull our kid out and send her to private school.
