There is too much focus on Athletics and sports. Academics too often takes a back seat to sports, especially football. The administration is trying too hard to be better than hamiltons football program, and it is costing the students.
The AP and honors teachers care and the principal is visible every morning outside. There is absolutely no reason any child should fail with so many resources.
Basha has it's problems, but what high school doesn't? Bahsa's Principal, staff and students are amazing! I have never been around people with as much school spirit and the motivation Bahsa Bears has. GO BHS BEARS!
The athletic politics are a major problem. To accept inexperienced and who you know players over visablly talented and more experienced players with high grades says alot about the fairness and integrity of this high school. What are you representing as adults and coaches? The athletic department and teachers need to be re-evaluated and instucted in balanced,fair criteria shown for each student, but it has to start with the administration and raising the standards of excellent in unbiased evaluations.
Great opening of school! Students looked happy and excited to begin their school year. Very professional Administration and Office personnel. The one thing I am truely happy with is communicating with my son's teachers by E-mail. School Campus is very clean and inviting, I truely believe this is going to be one of my son's BEST Years at Basha High School.
The Principal is leaving and that is a good thing. She has never been proactive and has always overreacted when certain situations arose. Some of the teachers feel that they are entitled and are not there for the right reasons. Next year will be interesting with a new principal. Hopefully, they can bring Basha around to being a good school.
There are some great people at Basha, but the administration is going through some changes. The principal, who we think is great is leaving and the current people in the running scare me. Maybe some racial issues with some of the secondary administrators.
Basha has contemporary style and teaching methods. A great opportunity for aspiring young students and athletes.
I think Basha is an overall good school but I think the teachers there are too young and rude.
Some of the teachers seem to be into teaching for all the wrong reasons.I have a sophomore and a junior and have been displeased with teachers each year. Admin.needs to get a grip and address these teachers.
I agree, to take away math class rooms in order to make them child care rooms, where is the wisdom in that? Overall academics are weak, are the music programs. Admin. seems to only care about sports and money making ideas (child care). We moved here from NY and are very dissappointed in the school.
I am currently a senior at Basha and although I love my school and enjoy attending BHS, I do not like administration. Something has to be wrong if most of the counselor's have left. Also, student government's ideas are often shut down that wouldn't normally be shut down at other schools in the district. I just think administration should lighten up a bit.
The sports department needs to be re-evaluated. It is obvious that there is a lot of politics in this department. Basha has an extreme amount of talent that is not being utilized. It seems that it's not what you know, it's who you know. How unfortunate for the kids and the school Let's be fare.
From a parent's view point... I think academics are fairly strong, but the high school is so new it doesn't have the clout of an established contender (as far as on-looking colleges are concerned). Sports are up and coming - decent teams in the major sports, but has suffered early on (again) due to newness of the school. 5 years from now, I believe Basha will be contending with other local high schools (i.e. Hamilton) for area title(s). Music program is good - way above other schools, yet behind some of the dominant musically inclined programs. Only knock on Basha is the auditorium used for orchestral and choir recitals - having visited many local high schools for various events, I feel Basha's is way to small and an extremely poor design.
Basha High is an excellent school, it is a place where your student can truly excel with incredible teachers and staff. I am very pleased with the Adminstration, and their constant support. The extracurricular activities are great, and new organizations forming every year. The best advice I can give you, it is to tell your child to get involved.
Well Basha High School is a school that you either you like it or you don't. Parents are very involved with very many things such as involvment of school Dances, Plays, Concerts, Sports, and other extracurricular activities. Basha just started a new program called the A+ Lab which can be very helpful if your child is needing to make up credits. Students are very active, and injoy what there accomplishing. Basha isn't rated so high on a drug free school, but it's getting better.
Willis Junior High school is an alright school, it is getting sort of a bad reputation considering the couple of activities that have gone on lately. The parent involvement and the sports are great.
We have been very pleased with Basha High School. Our son came from a very small K-8 private school and we have been satisfied with Basha despite its size. Teachers have been prompt to respond toemails and seem genuinly concerned about our son's progress. I am a substitute in Chandler Unified School District and have worked on all three high school campuses. I have seen more respect and better behavior from the students at Basha High.
I am very happy with the quality of education, however as the area is growing the school seems to be shrinking in size, My son has done very well at Basha.
Basha High School is a great school but because it is year-round it feels as though my child is distracted during it. The teachers are nice, but some of them are extremely rude.
