I visited Berrien HIgh School this past summer with my son. My son was having a job interview for a football position at Berrien High School. I rode with him from Atlanta just for the ride. I used the time to drive around the community and to visit a real estate office in case my son got the job. I was impressed with the community and the folks I met at the school. We live in the Atlanta area and the prospect of someday having my son at Berrien High School was very exciting for my entire family. I hope everyone in the school community has a very exciting and successful year. C. Charles Duplantis

BHS is great! I'm only a freshman there, but it is wonderful. The lunches have definently improved, immensely. The teachers are absolutley the best. They all connect with their students, and go out of their way to give every student an equal oppurtunity to succeed. The student body is very diverse, but there isn't much seperations between them. 90% of the students get along well. Overall, I wouldn't want to go to any other High School!

Most people would say this school is one of the best and safest, as a student, I know otherwise. People are bullied daily, it is absolutely uncalled for. the school is vvery diverse in its student body, and as such, when someone sees something they aren't used to and don't like, they usually have a nasty comment to give about it, usually involving some cursing and unneeded gestures. the school lunches are terrible, no offense to the people in the lunch room, but money is put into giving pay raises to everyone else when it could be used for materials and betterment of lunches and such. The board has lost all sense of reality and are using money unwisely on things that shouldn't be paid for in the first place. The school could use some work.

Our school isn't perfect but even with all the constant change in leadership over the last several years our test scores have remained at or above RESA in many areas. If I have any concern it would be the apathy toward school and towards taking pride in what you are doing that I see from more and more students. It seems that the more opportunities we give students to seek help, tutoring, and remediation, the less willing some of them are to take advantage of these extra chances.

As a student at BHS, I think it's only fair that someone within the 'uppercrust' of the authority ask some of us 'kids' about what we need. There was a review written about our school being really safe- sadly, that's not true. Kids get in fights all the time. Small kids are thrown up against lockers and walls by big kids. WHEN (not if) the bomb threats come, we'll go out and sit in the same place we do everytime at the same time for the same amount of time everyday for a week. That's really safe... For some strange reason our school system does seem to find enough money to add on to the administration's (or the new coaches') paychecks but seemingly not enough to feed our students more than six walnut-sized chicken nuggets for a main course. Spirit and morale have gone WAY down since I started at BHS...

in my opinion the school has gone down lot. im a new transfer student to the school tis year, and i moved there because i heard that the shools were some of the best. but so far all i see is that the money is being used unwisely and some of the treachers should not be teaching because of the way they run their classrooms!!!!! maybe the new principle, mr. bateman can turn the the school around especially with the recent bomb threats of last year!! gavin sumner, a student

Students at BHS are very blessed to have the kind of dedicated staff and teachers they do. If a student is having trouble, he need only ask his teacher for extra help. I have never known a teacher at BHS who did not offer to come in early or stay late with a student. If a student is willing to work hard and follow instruction, there is no reason he can't succeed. I have had experiences as a student and an educator in high schools in several other states. BHS is one of the safest schools I have seen.

Berrien High used to be a all well rounded school to attend. Now the kids are having to ajust almost every year to a new principle, that is not fair to them. Some of the teachers do not need to be teachers with the way they handle their classes. Some thing a lot of improving.

The food served is atrocious. The teachers are GREAT but the administration and board have completely lost touch with reality. My child's senior year will be most unmemorable. The missing fine arts programs have been half way corrected.

This school as far as SOME teachers and the students are not at all that bad. It's the school's board. I think that they need to get their priorites straight. BE FAIR.

The last person who responed was correct. The money is being used in a way that does not seem fit. Students will be there or will not be there depending on their opinion of the school and what they learn there. BHS is a great school, but lacking spirit that was there when Mr. Dorsey was there. Maybe it's people's way of doing things, but a lot of morale has gone down.

Im not really a parent. im achually a student. And i agree with the last person who put her input in. I think the school should use their money more wisely. Our new principal, Mr. Parker, is giving away 1,200 to students who's to class on time everyday, and a new car to a student who hasnt missed any days, well the school is suppose to be struggling for money, they could buy a new classroom set of books with that money. It's supposed to be left up to the students to get to class on time and to attend everyday. If they really dont care about school then they dont need to be there.

I am really disapointed in the school system we have here. when we moved here over 10 years ago we were told the schools here were some of the best. we never had to pay extra for summer school in florida.It can cost any where from 250.00 -400.00its not the schools but the school system. I thought that the lottery was supposed to help out with school supplies and other things to help make it easier for the students but every time you ask about something the money is never there for the kidsbut the government officials are always getting raisesand such,money that I feel would be better placed in the schools.
