So far, Bartram Trail High School has been awful. I'll be more specific: Apparently, the institution is so overworked and overcrowded, it's nearly impossible to get a counseling appointment just to register. In the meanwhile, as the clock ticks closer to the first day of school, you're left completely in the dark. Banned from attending orientation with no options to properly prepare your child, a half-hearted, last minute micro-orientation "might" be an option for those who are forced to wait to register. As a military family, we have enough ground under our feet to decipher good from not-so-ideal schools and there are red flags flying all over Bartram . The administration is curt and uncaring and it seems the principal struggles with effective planning strategies. I'll provide an update and amend the rating (if appropriate) once my student is actively attending... But it will be solely on the teachers and curriculum to turn this review around... Should be interesting since a review of the course catalog leaves MUCH to be desired.
The only thing this school has that means anything is it's football program. The teachers do not care about the students, the AFJROTC program is pathetic, and the school has a huge drug problem that no one is doing anything about.
Limited Programs: This district no longer has a gifted program K-12, and offers no gifted services in high school. FCAT scores and rankings trump children's individual learning needs. Families used to move to this district for their gifted program, but now gifted children's needs are disregarded K-12.
I started at bartram in ninth grade and i am currently in my senior year. I cam here after attending a Catholic grade school for ten years so I knew no one when i started. Students were very welcoming and I made friends in no time although sports helped with that. The teachers are well educated and the curriculum is challenging if you apply yourself and enter the more difficult of classes. The teachers are helpful and always give oppertunities to help students but the the front office and administration is less then desirable. They take a "help yourself" approach. all-in-all a great school!
The teachers are excellent, although the administration leaves a lot to be desired. Students and teachers alike are frustrated with the principal, yet continue to do their best to get a quality education.
This school's got it all!! Academics, Athletics and Clubs that care. They are about having fun while caring for others.
We are a Military Family and have our chirldren have gone to school to school in several different states. BTHS is by far the school with caring, resourceful and competent teachers and administrators. If all that were not enough students are instilled with 'Bear Standards' - Be on time, Be prepared, be respectful, be will to give your best effort!!! These core values will benefit students there entire life. That is priceless!
BTHS exemplifies community. Whether its working on the common goal of excellent education, or fostering community spirit through sports, BTHS draws neighbors and friends, parents and teens together.
BTHS continues to challenge my child to excell in all academic areas. School is enjoyable and a great place to learn. Teachers are passionate about the subjects they teach and try to pass their interest on to the students. Success is expected, it is just part of the culture of the school. It is a great place to go to high school.
Both of my children graduated from Bartram Trail. They both were VERY different in their abilities and talents. They both received excellent High School education there.
An A school, great sports program, great academic achievments, and great community involement, no violence, a wholesome school
Bartram has a great acedemic variety and the additional academies offer 'real life' training. The teachers are friendly and interested in the students and there is great 'Team Spirit'!
BTHS expects excellence! The students strive to achieve it. The facilities, teachers and extra activities all unite every family involved.
Having one graduate and another still attending, Bartram provides an exceptional learning environment for all students. From the principal, guidance, teachers and students, BTHS promotes higher learning, great character, and has had a positive impact on thousands of our youth. BTHS is a role model school for our community and deserves the to win.
Involved students, staff, and families. Notice I said families not just parents. Sporting Events, Band, Dance etc. are attended by Parents, Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Friends. and just about everyone from the Community!
I love that the staff truly cares about each child individually. You are not a number there. The staff has bent over backwards to make sure my child succeeds!
Bartram Trail is a fantastic school where the students have many opportunities and a safe place to land. The teachers and families are dedicated to making it one of the best schools in the state!
My children daughter enjoyed Bartram High School very much. She stated everyone including teachers and students were very friendly and helpful during her transition from another school. Everyone made her feel right at home. Thanks Bartram for making her 4 years of high school enjoyable and memorable.
We moved here last October. I expected a settling in period. Instead, with regards to this school, the move was seamless. Academically, and socially, my son settled right in. From our first meeting with guidance we (hubby, son, & I) felt right at home.
