Living in the town all my life, I am very familiar with the school system in this town and have almost nothing but great to say about it. Ballinger High School is one of those schools that you just cant forget, all the memories made are ones you never forget, everyone is friendly and fair and I would not have it any other way. The school spirit that BHS posses is by far the best i've seen in a high school all over Texas, even the whole town will go out of their way to support the growth and prosperity of the school, and with that being said, lets get to the negatives. BHS is under a dress code, though not as strict as some other school have, a nuisance at that. Men have to have their shirts tucked in at all times and must have their faces cleanly shaved, I can understand this for a team going out on a sporting event for away games, but at school? Speaking for everyone I can say that no one likes the dress code, is there was something I could change about this school It would be that and only that.

I came here as a senior, and after viewing this website, expected to find a distinguished school with semi-challenging classes and a decent curriculum; however this school is far below average when it comes to academics. They seem to cater to below average students and have no amenities for advanced students. Although the course guide claims they offer A.P. classes, in reality they do not. The only advanced classes they offer are online college classes that are only accepted at a limited range of schools, and cost $350 apiece. The teachers, while all very nice people, do not seem capable of educating the students adequately. While they understand their subjects, they can not seem to pass that knowledge on to the students. One teacher would give tests on subject matter that he had not even covered, and then scream at the class when we did not understand the information. One teacher constantly forgets what she has already taught us and what assignments she has already given us. The school does have a couple good characteristics. The art program is excellent, and the school never runs short of basic supplies, like paper. If you have any other choice, I would not recommend this school.

Ballinger High School is a great school because of it's size. Smaller enrollment means smaller classroom sizes, which in turn translates into a better overall education.
