This school's advisement and counseling faculty are not very amenable to incoming transfer students from other districts and states. They will not work with the student, family, and previous schools to get the information needed to be sure of the smooth transition and academic success of the student coming in to their school. Due to their recent expansion and construction, they also are very difficult to get in touch with and suffer from SERIOUS disorganization. After weeks of issues with this school we finally decided to withdraw our student and opted for Online instruction through K12 and OVCA in order for our son to graduate this school year on time with his respective class. So very disappointed with the experience we have had with this administration. *Note: After sending an email to the school administration, they did reach out to our family in an attempt to reconcile the issues. They have agreed that it is necessary to change their enrollment processes for incoming transfer students,particularly upper level students from other districts and states and offered to make things right for our son. I was please at this effort and attentiveness to the situation.

Unfortunately, given the circumstances surrounding issues trying to successful enroll as a transfer student from another state, we didn't get enough exposure to adequately assess this. However, on only the 3rd day of school my son witnessed a violent fight in the hallway of his classes and that student was allowed to return to school. This was disturbing.

I went to BHS for my junior and senior year and loved it. The school had enough room for all the students. The princeple and teachers were great. I loved BHS and was very ready to attend an in state college where i did very well.

Bartlesville High School does an excellent job of preparing students for post-high school success. The principal is a strong advocate for kids

elementary schools are teaching everyday mathematics. it is a type of math that will need to be supplemented in the secondary class setting. our children will not be prepared for high school mathematics due to the inadequacy of learning in the elementary classroom. the curriculum needs to be restructured if our children are going to excel in higher mathematics. the bartlesville school system is 'dumbing down' our children rather than raising the bar for excellence.

Bartlesville's AP programs are wonderful and the school is far above the state average; however, if this is not enough for you there are many courses offered at Oklahoma Wesleyan and Tri County Tech

I have found the Bartlesville school system to be good for children whose parents teach them at home. The children,of working parents that do not have the education or time to work with their children, do not recieve a good education at Bartlesville schools. The school systems spends far too much money on administration and on buildings, also on teachers with unneeded higher degrees. From past experance I found the teachers at Bartlesville schools elementry threw high school do not want the parents to be involved. We pay very high price for the system. As long as teachers have tenure we will never have good school system.

The teachers need to be more concerned with the students' achievement. Some students are neglected while the advanced students are bored because they are not challenged academically. The music program is the saving grace.

Excellent band, orchestra, choir, forensics programs. Excellent science department. Library is woefully below standards but scheduled to be built soon. Excellent college prep. Vocational education is available across town.

The school's new face lift is wonderful and a great opportunity for students to become aquainted with college style classes. It made going to college a better transition.

Wonderful choral music program. Nice building & grounds. Not lacking in resources. However, principals & other faculty, teachers lacking in interpersonal skills, teaching ability.
