Bastrop High is a pathetic school. The whole school system in Bastrop LA is pathetic because it is run by stupid people. Advanced placement kids went a whole year without a teacher. The principal is never there. The school is filthy. The superintendent doesn't care about the system or the kids. The assistant principals are incompetent. Football players are given free grades. Kids roam the halls screaming and cursing. Need I say more. Move somewhere where your kids don't have to go there.

Unfortunately I have three kids that go here as I really have no other choice. A school especially a high school is a microcosim of the community in which iit is located. Bastrop is a small town consisting mostly of hypocritical "Sunday" Christians intolerant of the religious and non religious views of others. Because of this the majority of the school's populace is going to have the same attitude. Individually you have some good teachers and students who try to make it better, but in my opinion the school is just bad.

Move, just move to a different school district - you do not want your children "educated" here.

Seriously, Why not slap a NUN in the door and be done with it? You want to be religious and all, brother please!

I'm obviously not going to rate a school that both encouraged and then failed to stop (knowing full well that it was planned) to stop unconstitutional prayer during graduation. This kind of negligence costs tax payers millions of dollars every year! Its a waste of time and resources and is completely inappropriate. Shame on this school's administers for failing our kids and failing to honor our countrie's foundational laws.

I observed the bullying of Damon Fowler. Your school is a disgrace. Having broken the law, you should be sued.

I cannot give a good rating to a school that threatens the well being of its students by not handling controversial matters with dignity and discretion.

Not only did one of the faculty provide inappropriate and insulting comments about a student in her care to a news channel, but this school also willfully violated the law with little care and/or understanding of the US Constitution and Supreme Court judgements. If the faculty and administration are unable to grasp the basics of the American legal system, they cannot be entrusted to teach future generations of Americans.

Horrid teachers and administration. If you are considering moving here...don't. The way students are treated is abhorrent.

The teachers publicly encourage bullying, and they feel that they are above the law. They were warned against illegal activity and still chose to ignore state and federal laws.

Confidential matters are treated with an utter disdain for delicacy--the chief incident of such in question, which occurred on May 20, 2011, has already been described in full by other reviewers. In essence, illicit actions were carried out, called out by one student (in private), and this student was almost immediately publicized by the staff of the school, and the action proceeded as planned anyway. As a side effect, the student in question has been ostracized by his community as well, as the action which violated the law was a mass prayer, which almost nobody disagreed with. Food for thought.

Schools that openly support bigotry and hatred on this scale should not exist. What this school, it's faculty, and student body did is deplorable.

Unfair treatment for students who stand up for their rights! They don't support the constitution and ostracize anyone who thinks outside the majority.

Disgusting and intolerant school. People of other religions must "tolerate" what we believe is total nonsense, yet when people express other beliefs then they are mocked. First amendment, everyone.

Disgusting bigoted and unconstitutional backwards Louisiana education at it's finest. As a Local Resident, It's a great shame to see this in our community.

This school is the only high school in bastrop besides a private school in the area, so if you live here you won't have much of a choice but to let your kids attend. My advice: Do Not Move There

The administration and faculty should be ashamed of themselves. These people have ignored their responsibility to the taxpayers of their community ,and more importantly to follow the law of the Constitution, by endorsed a divisive religious practice which will, unfortunately, result in a significant lawsuit. If I lived in this community, I would be outraged.

Amazing how horrible the school has been handling the graduation prayer debacle. They were even warned. I'm just happy they'll end up getting sued, because this cannot stand.

BHS has one of the best music programs in the state. The school doesnt recognize these students for who they are. This schools band has went to festival and had people wondering what school did you say these kids were from. It might not be the music that students of BHS want to hear but its the best music people would want to hear if they dont even know where your town is located or any about Bastrop.

i think bhs is a decent school. i mean it could be a lot worse. you just have to remember kids will be kids. the main thing is some , most, students lack the 'home traning' to know how to act.but then again, there are some remarkable students who you just know are going to do well later in life.ive seen kids staighten up their act a lot just becuse they have someone there to tell them what is wrong and what is right.i enjoy going there because the teachers......well most of them, actually care and want to see their pupils exceed..... michelle nichols

I think Bastrop High School in one of the best, if not the best high school in Northeast Louisiana. The students are very respectful. Some may get a little out of line sometimes, but overall, they are very respectful. The academics are fabulous, offering early morning classes and tutoring after school. The extracurricular activities are very important and it is because of the involvement of students in these activities that discipline problem have been kept to a minimum. The Rams are Class 4-A state champions in football because of the discipline of Brad Bradshaw and his staff. Parents are becoming more and more involved in activities at the school because they feel that their involvement in wanted and needed. The administration, led by Mrs. Cynthia Atlas, is compassionate and caring, firm and fair. I think Bastrop High School is an ideal place to send your child.

The academics of BHS are the best in the state. BHS has one of the best,if not the best football team in the state. BHS has alot of extraccarricular activities but could do a little better in the music department. The parents are a big part of the education of the school and are usually notified first if there are any problems. BHS is easily one of the best schools in the state. I can't ever remember seeing any violence as long as I've been here. They are very strick about violence and threats about violence.
