The school's a few eggs short of a dozen, but it still delivers a tasteful omelet. The academic and extracurricular opportunities are nothing short of amazing, there's so much to do that you would have to go out of your way not to get involved. The administration is really top tier when it comes to discipline and behavior; fellow students may call it Alcatraz, but I call it a safe learning environment. Biloxi High offers well over 10 AP classes and the staff offers generous assistance to any of those who may need the extra mile or desire to sharpen their GPA. Multiple tutoring sessions and retest opportunities have a late bus running in the afternoon to remedy the issue of needing parental transportation. Multiple club, organizations, sports activities, and overall kind student body means a new student moving in will have plenty of opportunities to socialize and interact. Biloxi High's generous AP opportunities and extracurricular choices along with its remarkable staffing and healthy student body make it an amazing place for a young adult to excel in his studies. For the serious student, assistance with post-secondary education is even offered. This is an omelet worth eating.
I went here for my freshman year. This school is awesome, the teachers care and give respect As long As you do your part. The atmosphere is great and diverse. We even have our own cafe. The athletics are off the chain. I'm from DC, school doesn't get much better than this. Sadly I have to go back to DC. if your child attends this school, be thankful because he/she could be going to a shook like mine with 3 clubs, no football team, rude teachers that don't care and swear in class, fights very week, 9 security guards because of the potential danger. It could be worse.
We came from a block scheduled school and my son lost 6 months of schooling. They did not have courses to match up where he came from and he is had to take algebra for a second time because of this. He is a straight B student and has never had any trouble. We are in the military and if you live on Keesler AFB this is the school district you have to go to unless you pay out of pocket. The school policy in regards to cell phones etc is oudated and parents have no control. The School Board answers to no one and come across as close minded bullies. Run far and fast. Its no wonder other states so outclass them.
I have a son who attended this school for 2 years. The prinicpal is rude and so is her secretary. She was allowed to hire her own daughter AND son-in-law to teach at the school. After several disappointments with the academics, sports programs, and attitude of the principal, we removed our son and placed him in a better school system. By the way, he was never in any trouble and an Honor Roll student. It's a shame they lose the good students.
BHS is an excellent school. The adminstration is wonderful and the campus is state of the art. Biloxi Public Schools have made tremendous progress in the last 15 years. Any child has the oppurtunity to thrive in this diverse and safe enviroment.
