All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

We have had children in BHS for almost a decade and have watched our school decline, especially in the last 2 yrs. The administration is condescending, rude, and treats the parents as "outsiders" instead of partners in the educating of their children. The AP program is in danger of being eliminated as the administration wants to move all the teachers down to regular classes in hopes of raising TAKS scores! Electives are weak-if a student is a teenage parent, or raising a cow or a pig, they will in good shape!

I have a freshman at BHS. My child is in mostly Pre AP classes and has excellent teachers. They do now offer PreAP Biology and newly completed science classrooms should help. Concerns: Limited choice in Advanced classes and scheduling does not facilitate students being able to take all advanced classes (they schedule them across from each other.) Language program is weak. Only Spanish and French I & ii are offered. III is currently offered but is at risk of being cut. Administration does not support language program although 3rd year is required for Distinguished Achievement diploma. Administration very defensive and dismissive about parent involvement. Advanced teachers are excellent. They work very well with parents and students who care about their education. Band program is fabulous. Debate/drama/choir also excellent. Beautiful new auditorium/choir/band halls. College Prep very weak. School needs to increase focus on college bound kids and academic achievement/scholarship.

Schools were a deciding factor in my move to Borger. My three children have thrived in an atmosphere of trust and acceptance. One has a learning disability, but her teachers are generous with their time, ready to modify and individualize, enabling her to be successful with the regular-ed curriculum--They come in early, stay late--several teachers even eat lunch with students who want to come in for extra help. My children's teachers, coaches, and music directors have all been excellent role-models, as well.

Borger High School is the worse school in the state of Texas.There is no help for the parents no concern for the students. These people that run this school are only concerned with their paycheck more than educating our children.Do not put your child in these peoples hands they will destroy your kid just run run away as fast as you can.Take them to fritch or stinnett. They are real and care.

We lived in Borger for 4 years and had a very positive experience with the schools. My child was in all Honors classes and had no problem transferring to a much more competitive high school in her junior year with one exception. The science classes really were not on the level with high schools that are able to offer pre-AP biology and chemistry. I hope the faculty will consider adding these classes in the future. We found the teachers to be very accessable and since it is a small community it was easy to get to know other parents and students.

This school has a great collection of teachers from all walks of life. The athletic department on the other hand, is lax. This school needs better coaching.
