I have been mentoring students for 15 years, the last four of which have been at BHS. I can say that Beaufort teens have their share of issues, and almost all of the administration, teachers, and Staff at BHS work very hard to meet those challenges with the students best interests in mind. The 'small school' format that Dr. Durbin instituted several years ago has really improved the atmosphere and relationships within the school. Whether a student wants to excel academically, artistically, or athletically BHS allows them every opportunity to do so. Their is fairly high school spirit, especially considering the transient nature of the community. On the whole Beaufort High has been one of the best schools I have worked with.

I'm a sophomore at BHS. Like most students, there are always problems, but overall, I find it fantastic at Beaufort High. BHS is very focused on preparing students for college/work. There are many sports and extracurricular activities that you can take part in.

This is the best school that I have ever been to! I graduated before the new school was built. I would highly recommend this school!

I am a past parent of a Beaufort High School student who graduated in 2006. My experience as a parent was a pleasurable one. Our son attended Advanced Placement and IB classes. The teachers were highly skilled and offered very competitive curriculums. There was an underlying humane and caring approach to teaching. My son attributes his ease into his university setting to the classes he took at Beaufort High School. The front desk staff was unusually gracious(in comparision to the elementary and middle school experience) always pleasant and made it easy to visit. The current principal is a maverick in his own right. Throughout my son's Beaufort County education I encountered administrators who seemed complacent with the status quo of students and relied on statistic that indicated that certain demographics of students were bound to fail. Durbin actively addresses problems and seeks solutions.

Our family has lived in many states and this is the worst school by far. Grade A on crushing students' spirit. We will be moving next year just to get away from this school.

The administration at Beaufort High School is more concerned with their own advancement and recognition than the students. This is not a school for college bound individuals.

As a current student (junior), Beaufort High is okay. At times things can be crazy, but overall its a good school. We have a good atheltic department, teachers are helpful when they can get to you and the principal is very communitive and everything is nice. Espcially, me for example, since my freshmen year, I noticed that you not only create bond with others, but with your teachers as well. Besides the overcrowding, I believe that Beaufort High is a good school to attend.

I'm an undergraduate at George Washington University with a major in English and a minor in Political Science. I graduated from Beaufort High with the IB diploma in May of 2005. This school is a program driven! If you are involved in a good extracurricular program like the Debate team and/or the Mock Trial team (both run by Mark Davis), you will go extremely far! I enjoyed attending this first-rate school and that's coming from a student who spent time in Japan (in some of the best schools in the world). This is a top drawer public education institution.

Beaufort high school is the best high school I've ever attended, although I've only been to 1 other different high school, I know that this school has the potential to knock any other schools off the charts! Faculty and staff are great. Once you get to know them a little...but other than that the high school is pure exellence! So for any first timers at BHS 'home of the eagles', youll do great at BHS no matter what!...oh yeah...keep the good work up eagles!(that goes out to the football team) :)

I graduated from BHS in 2001, and I loved it. Although some of the administration and faculty were questionable sometimes, the majority were outstanding. If one takes advantage of the advanced curriculums BHS offers, one will definitely benefit from what this school has to offer. I was involved in several academic organizations, as well as the Pre-IB/AP programs. If I had any problems with faculty, the administration took care of it right away. The individual who stated this school is 'wack' obviously, judging by his/her grammar and limited vocabulary, has not taken advantage of the incredible opportunities this school offers. It is people such as these that give this school a bad name. -A. Hamm, c/o 2001, USC Senior
