Boyertown Area Senior High School is a terrible school for children with disabilities. I understand that some have many good things to say about the district regarding this topic, however these parents seem to be parents with an outward or well documented medical condition. Those parents who have a child with ADHD or emotional needs suffer the worst as ADHD often only qualifies for a 504 plan and emotional needs are subjective. The 504 works well until high school. At this point the HS takes the stance that success is up to the student and bail on the 504 plan. It was a long hard fought battle with the district that only created a bigger divide by trying to help my child. With no child left behind the district never intended to ensure a child graduates with the skills needed but rather just pass the children through. I inquired with other parents and found this a common complaint from them as well. Boyertown has many lawyers on standby to fight against you and it takes a lot of time and money to fight back.The documentation however helped with the college search to explain the low GPA and test scores. Federal funding for Intermediate units are being cut and phased out. too.

The great music program Boyertown has. We do musicals that can compare with Broadway.

I am a graduate of the Boyertown Area School District. Currently, I am guardian to a grandchild attending Boyertown Area Jr. High West. I commend the committment of the teachers, the principal, and assistant principal. My grandchild had difficulties that required a team effort and I worked closely with all those people to get my grandchild on track. The no-nonsense, cooperative effort we adopted in addressing problems has made all the difference and will have life-long benefits for my grandchild. This school went above and beyond and I will be eternally grateful. Finally, for those who may be impacted by negative ratings, I would like to say that parental involvement is essential...teachers cannot run disruption-free classrooms if parents do not communicate behavioral expectations to their children and institute consequences when those expectations are not followed.

We have attended 4 school districts over the last 15 years and we were very unhappy with Boyertown HS. Many teachers allow the students to disrupt the class to the point that they can't even teach any more. The grading system is very erractic and difficult to follow. Parental Portal only tells parents the grades after they are done. They do not notify parents of assignments and they do not inform them when the student begins to struggle. We have had many meetings with the principal and staff at the high school with no results. If my child could attend the tech school all day, we would stay in the district. We have no alternative but to find private schooling that will put us back into debt.

This is a great school with a wide variety of activities for the students. They have great academics and have many advanced placement courses available. The parent involvement is adequate.

I have a 15 year old sophomore at BASH> He has been in the school district since Kindergarten. High school teacher quality is inconsistent. Some notable and excellent some downrigth laughable. Opportunities for enrichment are available but unguided. Music and arts programs continue to be well supported and a plus!

Our son is now entering the 10th grade and enjoyed Jr Hi West never missing honors. He likes the xtra courses in Hi school and has elected no study halls this year just so he can take an xtra elective in Business classes. We feel this Hi school will give him the edge he will need to excel in college and life. Teachers seem very caring and willing to give that etra attention as well as the principal. Many choices in xtracurricular activities. Overall great schools.

My daughter graduated 2004 from Boyertown and I have a son in the Junior High. I think Boyertown is a very good community and takes pride in their schools and it shows.

I am a student at Boyertown and enjoy it thouroughly. The extra curricular activities are one of our best features. We have very dedicated teachers and coaches who try there best to help us improve. Our music program is my personal favoritve. We had a phenomenal Musical this year, and are known for our superb musical talent. Although it is a large school the students are very close and laid back. There is somthing for everyone here.
