Im a junior here at BHS and I don't think it is as bad as our reputation says it is. What I like most about it is that there are a limited amount of cliques throughout the school (depending on your class). I either find the teachers really fun and are people who I can be friends with or super arrogant and not out of touch with the students. There's no in-between. I'm unimpressed with the school principle as he has made no benefit to the school and only focuses on misbehaved students. I don't like how the students have a lack of school spirit and there is sometimes a negative competition between classes. I have not heard the best thing about the school food and drinks. However, I very much love the guidance counselors as I feel like they have a genuine care for the students. As a student, I genuinely hate the work that we do. We aren't given any assignments we can use our creativity. It's just essay after essay after essay, even for classes like algebra. Overall, if I were to leave BHS tomorrow I would be content with my experience and friends that I have made.

Im in my sophomore year at bhs and i must say the education is awful. And the drama involves everyone. But yet us burrillvillian teens sure can come together when theres a sports event or a problem the school/town is facing. There arent really any 'cliques' there. You'll find groups of friends made up of completely different people. And every student is close to atleast 1of the teachers, which is nice when you need advice or a friend thats not going through puberty.

Burrillville High School is a very bad school to attend. It has taught my son nothing at all and I am very dissapointed none the less. The teachers there are horrible and disrespectful and I am very angry about that. Mr. Trogish was very much better then there new one.

This school is in deep trouble if it continues to cut staff as it has been doing over the past few years. Teachers are the life blood of this school and without them, the students will not be able to succeed.

My son had some educational problems before entering the high school due to a learning diability. They have taught him to increae his self-confidence and since then his grades have gone way up. All he need was someone to believe in him.

This school has tought my child the pride in getting good grades. I owe most of it to the excellent teaching staff and because of the principal who has strict but fair rules. Thank you Burrillville High School and staff.
