Unfortunately, the students never see their counselors so it is very difficult to get college help. Very rude office staff. They should be welcoming to students and parents!

Develops character: Strongly agree

Incredible teaching staff that works for all students. Administration sets high standards for everyone. Parents are very involved in many activities that support students.

Batavia High School is the gem of the Fox Valley. Most Western suburbanites seek out the Naperville school districts when looking for a new community, but this top rated school, just a notch under Dist# 204 is a terrific option (with less congestion and traffic when you learn to avoid Randall Road). Although there is a huge focus on sports, the music program is second to none and the staff support a college readiness agenda. The band/orchestra program is very impressive. Students are on a block schedule and are expected to immerse themselves in coursework, think and work independently, be responsible for their own future. Both the brightest who will be well prepared for college, and those who prefer a non-college path have challenging course options. I have one son who is still attending BHS. I wish we would have moved here sooner for my older sons to get the benefit of all four years in this great learning environment. As a mother, home-owner and a Realtor I recommend this community for the school district. Well worth the taxes.

This school is the worst school in the world! Bullies try to get good kids in trouble, even though those kids didn't do anything at all! Even though there is no proof that the kid did anything that kid got suspended.

I have found BHS to be a great school. The continue improvement in their teaching and curriculum offerings have made it one of the top rated high schools in Kane County.

This school has some good teachers, but has a very poor record in teaching students with disabilities (4th year of academic warning status with the state for its large achievement gap). No encouragement to take the PSAT or early career planning for gifted sophomores. Administrative leadership is non-existent. If you are relocating here look at Naperville or St. Charles High schools.



- a student
Many new additions, as said below. one does not have to be above average o succeed, they only need to try, math department goes up to Calculus 2, and AP Calculus 1; a math class is completed every half year (semester, students can take either 1 or 2 math classes a year (or not at all, if math requirements are meet), as a freshman you can only take one. A very large amount of classes are offered alongside the standard academics, there are currently 6 general use computer labs, over 4 carts of about 25 laptops (class sizes vary), a cart of laptops in the shop, and a cart of the districts best laptops (better than the techies) for the engineering programs. great school with lots to offer for all kinds of students; science, engineering, math, athletic, dance, arts, music, photography, 3 languages (Spanish, French, Latin).



- a parent
Overrated school. If your child is above average, this is the school for your child. They do not want to deal with students that are average or below average. They do not want to deal with children who have learning disabilities. Most of the teachers are mostly concerned about their insane pensions. Look elsewhere.




- a parent
Excellent academics, drama department, music program, atletics ..... I could go on! Plenty of tutoring available, by teachers and upper classmen, before, during and after school. The parent & community involvement is very high, resulting in respectful students, and great communication! There is a club or activity for every student to be involved in. The completion of the new auditorium this summer will be the icing on the cake!



- a parent
High school is disappointing. It is operated on the "good ole boy mentality." The administration is really out of touch with the student population and there are teachers, coaches and administrators who should have been fired a long time ago. Strong bullying atmosphere and no attempt to change the culture in the school. The education is not up to par and their math program is lacking at best.
