Awful! If you're not white, you're looked down upon, if you're white but not rich, you're also looked down upon by the rich upper class white students who attend this school. They are mean, shallow, egotistical, and think that everyone is beneath them. There is a huge race to popularity by this type. The councilors have no time for you unless you're a straight A student. A horrible experience. A few of the teachers are somewhat dedicated but some have no time for the kid who needs a little extra help, they will stand by and watch these kids drown. Don't send your kid here unless you're wealthy and white and don't care about your kid mixing with these kids who have no dignity, morals or heart..
My kid is a freshman at BHS. Advanced classes especially Math and English are terrific. Would rate 80% of his/her teachers A+. Good environment - the freshman class has its cliques but nothing too obnoxious. School spirit is high across the grades. Hear a bit about some "over enthusiastic" parties etc - but there are plenty of kids who are just having a regular good time. All in all - so far, just terrific!
I am currently a freshman at BHS and I love it! the teachers are so passionate about their subject and really care if the student understands the material. The teachers are always available for review sessions and questions. I have always gone into my tests confident. There are cliques but they are not set and stone. Most kids are friends with multiple people in different cliques. There tends to be a lot of drama but overall there are great, smart kids at this school. The drama blows over after a day or so when new drama comes up. The activities offered at this school are incredible! Many great sports with great coaches who are proud of their players. There are many clubs and if you don't like any club, start your own!I am proud to say that i am a panther!
