I think that everyone should know that Bastrop High School provides a safe learning environment for students. BHS gives students ample opportunities to participate in extra-curricular activities. The school clubs are active and strive to create an authentic student interest in the club and community. As the school has a lower student enrollment (due to an additional high school in the district recently) I believe there will be opportunities to grow in areas other than enrollment numbers. There is an opportunity to create a great high school.

awesome! Our administrators, teachers and students are working hard to raise the bar on academic achievement and college preparedness. In 2013 we were named a School of Academic Distinction by state of Texas. We are determined to match or beat that rating again this year. We have college professors teaching Early College Start classes on campus who ask to return year after year because our students are engaged, polite and active in class. We invite anyone to walk onto our campus and feel the school spirit that fills our halls.

I have been very pleased with Bastrop High School. I have three children that graduated from BHS. The education they received has allowed them to pursue their goals at major universities here in Texas. Two of my children have earned their Bachelors and landed wonderful jobs in cities of their choice. In a month, the third will earn an MBA.

I have worked at BHS for over 20 years and have seen many changes. Currently we are an innovative, college and career driven, public high school with a very hard-working, caring staff. There are many opportunities for students to be involved and participate if they so choose.

Bastrop High School is not at all a good school. The administration is utterly incompetent, most of the teachers have no real enthusiasm (There are several, that is to say <7orso really great teachers who put up with this for some reason). The counselors, or at least mine, were much worse even that the administration. The career center was very limited in it's usefulness. Students there are, for the most part, closed-minded and have little will to participate in an academic environment. The school's clubs/organizations are not top-notch at all, and they are starting to disappear as well. If you send your child to this school I highly recommend trying to reach out into extra-curriculars and outside studying because almost nothing in this school is going to put your child in their/your university of choice. There are, though, several very excellent teachers. Most are terrible though. I've been taught by some teachers here who really don't care at all. And why should the students care if the teachers don't.

As a student BHS, and can say that it is the worst school i have ever experienced. There is no control over the students, (well, if you're generally a good kid, you can get an ISS for something mediocre, while the kids with poor behavior get away with murder.) the staff help for the students is terrible, (The parking lot is constantly a mess, and the parking lot police will let students cars get keyed, but dont let you park anywhere but the slum of a student parking lot. Try to get help in the career center and they act like YOU should've known how to sign up for the SAT since birth). That, and everyone's high and pregnant. On a lighter note, the teachers are decent, but still, do your child a favor, and get as far away from the Bastrop School district as you can.

I hate the school. My daughter was attending Bastrop and would skip a lot. I was not notifed till the end of the day instead of being notified right away. Students drag their feet to get to class and are always late. Teachers see the students not moving after bell rings and do not get kids moving to get to class.

The opening of the new Cedar Creek High School will help to alleviate overcrowding issues for Bastrop High School. The Bastrop High School received a transformation both exterior and interior. The addition of the Jerry Faye Wilhelm Performing Arts Center has made a substantial improvement for the district. We have a list of great teachers at Bastrop High School. One in particular is Mr. Ed Willis. He is accessible, cheerful, and helpful. He tries to motivate everyone. He does not allow student behavior issues, either in his classroom or outside of class. Yet, he treats everyone with respect. He tries to give students a broad spectrum of college experience. He also serves as the Interact Club sponsor. Many students turn to him for tutorials (quite a few are not his students).

Good high school. They offer a variety of programs, both athletic and academic. They offer honors class's and college credit class's. Decent class size and student teacher ratio.

Bastrop is plagued by large overcrowding and lack of substancial funding. This is primarily noticed at the 9th grade campus. Many students cause trouble and the are many language issues, (i.e. profanity). The fine art programs like dance and the band are very sucessful, but the band often finds funding issues. There are three avaliable football teams, freshmen,JV, and Varsity. There is also vollyball, basketball, baseball, and soccer teams, and the possibility of a lacrosse team soon. Parents seem rather disinvolved with some programs, and that leads to some mismanagement problems.

This is a good school given the limitations of the physical plant. Teachers are all certified. Failed bond issues are due to a poorly educated populace that places little value in the education of their children. The faculty and staff are doing remarkable work as shown by the sucess of graduating students, extracurricular, athletic ativities and academic progress. The student body is one of the most diverse in Texas. The community needs to look outside and see what every other district in this area have provided for their children. The dark dingy halls, small class rooms and the poorly constructed physical plant all detrack from the learning process. In summation, this structure and the state of the physical plant are an embarassment and renovation, or replacement must be accomplished as soon as possible. The building is becoming dangerously over crowded. Inspite of the limitations, kids are still well taught at BHS.

As a current sophomore I believe a large part of these facts [in other reviews} are out of date. For instance...I have many classes with 30+ people. The building itself is probably the biggest problem at the moment. Low ceilings, grey paint and yellow lighting make scool a depressing and dreary place to learn. Because of the failed bond elections we remain a 5A school shoved into a 3A building.

Posted November 22, 2003

There seems to be a lot of teachers in this district that are not certified. How do they continue to keep teaching our children when their certifications have expired? I am a very concerned parent. Could it be one reason why they can't seem to get a bond to pass to build a new high school?

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.
