The staff members don't care about the students. I have seen students do drugs in school and nobody is doing anything about it

This school sucks, it has mean staff members and teachers who make us read from the text book and answer questions all year around. This school makes it hard for me to understand anything because I'm the one who has to look up/read the textbook a couple of times to actually get the lessons that we are giving. If you haven't made the biggest mistake of your life (which is applying to this school) then DON'T do it.

so i am graduating this year and this school is really cool and friendly. if you like art you should totally go hear the only problem is some students may find not as artistic type or have what they would like but when it comes to working on your portfolio in your senior year for an art college its a pretty good thing to do. if you draw pretty good and have the eye for it totally go for this school.

if i could give this school a million and one stars i would. this school is a very secluded and quiet school. it isnt the over populated typical high school where kids are cutting and smoking in the rest rooms this school actually has security and staff who make sure that your child is doing what it is suppose to. also if your child is failing they never ignore it. this school has multiple afterschool, night school and even saturday programs year round where your child can come in and get more help on what they are struggling on. this school is just like a big family everyone is always helping and looking out for each others best interest. the staff is also very helpful and friendly. if your child loves art and wants to go to a smaller school this is DEFINITELY the best choice. if i could go for another year i would. :) my brother is also very in love with this school and it is only his first year

My child prior to attending BHSVA came from a MS of 1500+ students and never failed a class, then attended a HS freshman year with 1100+ students and never failed a class. Due to circumstances, he is now attending BHSVA of maybe 400 students total which I thought would be great, more 1 on 1 with 4 AP's, unheard of and his first semester he failed 4 out 6 classes. Please tell me what is wrong with this picture? You do have staff members that go that extra mile once you kick and scream and the principal and parent coordinator address concerns immediately and are very nuturing, caring and understanding.
