I'm a student at BSHS, new at the beginning of the year, but fitting right within a month or two. As for education here, I've got no complaints. You get out what you put in here, it's really nice, a wide variety of AP and regular classes, and the teachers for AP classes are really great with students, enthusiastic, with the right mixture of discipline and control over the class. The fine arts department is similarly excellent. Theatre really does an outstanding job with productions and the music classes are wonderful. The character of the students here, though, I'm not so sure about. Sure, I've made friends, found decent people. But outside of the small group I've collected, students are fairly close-minded about anyone different--whether sexual orientation, dress, or just general mannerisms. I found a lot of discrimination not towards ethnicity, but towards diversity, which really disappoints me. Overall, it is a pretty decent school, and I believe you really can get an excellent education here.
