. i am also very displeased to find the nonchalant attitude when it comes to a student needing help. the coaches and the teachers are very unprofessional and as a result the athletic and education department lacks tremendously. most students and teachers speak spanish even though english was voted to be the offical language

I agree that most teachers at this school are not much to brag about. I have found that if you keep in close contact with your students coucelor request bi weekly grade checks it tends to keep the techers a little more on there toes. I think this school has a lot of potential but the school board needs to put some presure on the teaching staff. Great sports programs.

I am not sure how good other High schools are, but this one has to be one of the worst in California. During an assembly, the staff recognized students who did 'basic' on SAT's last school year. Basic?? The only outstanding department of this HS is the Sports Program. Particularly Football and Wrestling. Now if they could just devote as much time and effort into finding great counselors and teachers as much as they do sports Coaches.

BUHS is a good school the only thing I'm concerned about is how some teachers don't care about the student education. But there are also some good teachers that do care. This school also has good athletic programs.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
