As a current student, I believe Bullard really has a lot to offer from its atmosphere to its academics. Courses are fast pace and teacher's are helpful,

I Am a Former Student Of This Marvelous School! In My Day To Say Anything Less Was Sac-Religous. When This School Opened In 1955 A.D. It Was Its Own School District And Was The Best High School In The United States of America. We Need To Call On That Great Spirit of Excellance Again. Aim High, Bullard Knights!!! M.H.

This school has numerous serious problems. To begin with, a meeting was held with about 500 concerned people. Fights, lack of discipline, kids running around on the roof, lack of desks for kids, regular kids put in gate classes because there is no room in reg. classes, bullying, attendance problems (the school, not kids), lack of morale, letting kids fail, and more. The district has a different perspective, calling is untruths. However, the district will not counter the accusations, merely stating the parents are wrong. It all must be true. When kids are expelled for pulling a weapon during a fight, they are sent to Bullard, not out of the district. FUSD is too greedy wanting the ADA money, therefore exposing our kids to violent kids. Will out school turn into another Newtown? It is possible. For all those skeptical parents, I implore you to visit the school. It is a very sad site.

My son graduated last year & had fun and took the AP courses. His senior year the school got a new Principal which he/I think made Bullard better. This Principal participates the other did not. I have been active in the $'s Bullard is receiving for the new pool as well as other needed facilities. the school is over 50 yrs. old. Happy with Bullard!

So far, i'd say it is a good learning environment

My son is new to this school this year, and we have moved here from out of state. We have found Bullard to be on the whole a good fit for him. The kids are friendly and open, and he has had a few great teachers. I have found the larger parent community here strangely apathetic, however. I think that it is the case of those who went to Bullard and then stayed in Fresno feeling that what was good for them is good enough for their kids and nothing more is needed. I have been to both the PTA and the Bullard Boosters meetings and am suprised at the low turnout. Bullard is not also the easiest place to 'review' as a prospective family-you need to be insistent about it. All in all a good place for us. Has the usual urban high school challenges, nothing scary.

One thing I forgot to add was that this school has such potential and deserves better leadership at the highest levels (Superintendent on down). FUSD's focus has been elsewhere for too long.

As I current student, I can say that the Bullard education is what you make of it. One of the problems with Bullard is that the school is divided into two groups of students: the students who take AP/Honors courses and those who take all regular 'prep' courses. The AP courses are, for the most part, very challenging and rewarding, but most of the regular classes are basically laughable. I will say that most of the teachers at Bullard are exceptional and want the best for their students. Overall, there are many options that students just need to take advantage of. The new principal is making some great changes that I think are going to improve Bullard academically.

This school caters to the north side of town. They need to improve there 0 tolerance rule. They also need to abide by the same rules that the other high schools have to abide by. They need alumni to support this school so that they get the improvements it needs. I don't feel that the teachers are reaching all the students and helping them to improve there grades. My overview of this school is poor. Gym classes need to have the correct ratio of boys and girls in every grade. When all of these things have been achieved then I might give this school a better rating.

I liked this school, but only if you do the honors and AP program.

I have been very happy with the academic classes available at Bullard. There is a great variety of good teachers and classes including good electives and AP classes. My son is in the marching band , jazz band, french and AP classes. He loves it.

My daughter is a sophomore at Bullard High for the 2005/2006 year. She enjoys the school and seems to have found a comfortable niche of smart, nice girls. One complaint we both have is that all the teachers seem relentless with the homework assignments, some of which make no sense and seem to be just busy work - but failure to complete them gets an automatic F. Homework that is not ever returned suggest it is also not ever looked at, so what's the point? It is a serious time committment - 2 hours a night, for no logic reason. My second complaint is with the sports programs - expensive with a lot of hidden costs that you find out about after the fact, and no matter how diligent and athletic any student may be, it's awfully hard to make the teams. This school district needs new direction.

Brilliant teachers fight inept leadership. / The teachers, with few exceptions, are caring, hardworking and very good at their subjects. / The Extracurricular activities are about average. Latin, Linguistics, and an Intro to Humanities course, all provided by Fresno State. Their sports teams are OK. The parents are often quite well off financially, which usually is a sign that parent involvement is high. The parents don't work any harder for their kids, but their money talks loudly./ / The A.P. classes are extraordinarily good, you could only ask for more minority students. The administration makes no obvious attempt to promote this, however. It is an average school.

We had two children on opposite ends of the spectrum attend Bullard. Our daughter, class of 1997, maintained a 3.9 GPA with GATE etc. classes. UCSB was a rude shock as she was totally unable to write a properly punctuated sentence, organize research or survive Calculus without a calculator. Bullard failed to equip her for advanced study. Incidentally, she did graduate from UCSB by learning the basics on her own. Our son was classified as unable to read on grade level, incapable of learning grammatical rules, and generally academically unteachable. Four years, with the repeat of the freshman year, in a good Colorado High School produced a current student at the University of Northern Colorado. Thank goodness we moved. After nine years in the Bullard Pyramid, I had begun to believe he was uneducable.

I am a past student of Bullard. I would tell anyone, that the years at the school were the best thus far. The teachers have been profound people in my life that I often have looked up to, and remember in my day to day activities. Bullard provided me with diversity in students, exceptional learning, and an overall experience that will never be duplicated.

I attended Bullard High and I know that this is a great school, academically, sociably, and in every way possible. You won't regret having your kids attend this school.

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.

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.
