I moved from New York to Bluffton. I went through the schools, and I absolutely hate it. It's a "Who you know" type of school. The ignorance, and lack of diversity is terrible. As a student, I saw it all. The grossest classrooms or bathrooms-the rudest teachers-rude kids-and an administration that DOES NOT CARE. Every year more teachers quit then I have seen. It really has ruined my student life. Uniforms are not too bad, as a student it's just annoying and hard. The uniforms are not strict at all but when they decide to be strict it throws everyone off. There have been days I went into school and 100 kids would be late for first block because of lousy administration deciding to do their job. NOT WORTH IT.

The school hosted a open house last week. I have never seen more unorganized fiasco. Envision 900 kids in a room trying to get their schedules will no semblance of order. We left after standing in line for 30 minutes(and didn't move. Doesn't speak to highly of the admin staff that organized this event. The school is average at best, only 72% met the English standards and 64% met the math standard in 2013. The school is about 50% minorities. The busing system is mismanaged. Students have to be picked up at ridiculous times before school. For example my child has to catch the bus at 630am and gets to school at 700am (the school is only 1.5 miles away). Oh and school doesn't start until 745am. Try to push your child towards the AP and honor classes. The main-stream classes are NCLB dumbed-down and "teaching to test" is the norm.

I just moved from a small town school and I love it here. The school is much larger which means that it has more teachers and better classes. When I first moved here and found out it had a/b schedule I was a little angry but it turns out that a/b is the greatest thing ever only 4 classes a day and get out at 2:30. This school is great

If you are considering a move to Beaufort County and will be sending your children to Bluffton High School, think again! I have been very disappointed in the quality of education in this school and even more disappointed in the poor quality administration. My husband and I would not have moved here if we had known about the poor education our children were to receive.

Bluffton High is a great school and I really enjoy being a student from there. The sports are becoming better and better. Academically, the teachers are preparing us for college. There is not a better school to go to in the Beaufort County district.

I have 2 teens in 10th grade. BHS is very new school with state-of -the-art classrooms and equipment. Very caring teachers, glad to stay after school to help kids catch up. ROTC raises the flag ea. morning, they say the pledge of allegiance, they teach all the alternatives to evolution! Hurray! We love it!

we just moved from the northand the climate of the school is open and warm. My children have been spoken to and interviewed for the best fit possible academically. They focus on my child achieving and preparing for their futures. I am looking forward to the next few years.

Very good school that is beginning to take shape in its academics, sports, and after-school clubs.
