I have been involved in the school for the last 6 years. The communication with the teachers and administrators has been stellar. There have been great improvements taking place, the most significant being the introduction of uniforms las year (2008). This has increase the student and staff morale, which ultimately results on student achievement. There are a number of extracurricular activities that students may joined. In addition, some renovations to the building structure as well. I encourage you to contact the school administrators to find out what else is happening at BHS.

About the tests
