Nothing new to report here, except a declining rating. This School is a "6" now. A new principle and a new overpaid football coach sums up a school in flux, teetering on the verge of further decline. Why spend money on football, when the other sports are ignored. My son even had to buy his track uniform last year - and it was 20 sizes too small.

Thinks that when a child is HAPPY to go to school and the teachers are putting efforts into making it fun for the student to learn then that s a GREAT school

BCHS has dedicated teachers and administration. The community and alumni are the best ever in giving support in funding for the benefit of educating students. Parent are supportive of school policies almost all of the time. As a teacher, I am highly satisfied with BCHS.

I have been very pleased so far. I have had a problem getting in touch with the guidance counseler but other than that the teachers and the principal have been great.
