I've seen bad schools, for those of you who haven't, please don't become more educated about what you post. I know the principal is outstanding, the front office staff is good, not great. Teachers are busy, but try. The kids could use a little more manners but who's kids couldn't? I'm sure my kids are safe here. Never a problem with bully's or segregation. I'm impressed by their computer policy's.overall....nice!

Our kids have gone here for years and we still have 3 more to finish high school . Some have already graduated and we couldn't be happier . In every school you get your ups and downs and favorites . But over all I feel it's a good school and I wouldn't have my kids go else where. Unfortunately it does seem to be a school that you get farther by who you know and what you wear, but hard work is never over looked . I feel it would help if they would go to uniforms.

My child was a new student to BHS last year. I was so afraid that she would have a hard time. She has been so well educated and cared for by the teachers and staff at this school. I couldn't be more thankful.

There are alot of problems with this school and the teachers. It depends on who you are and how forunate you are on how your treated. They lack academic skills and the students worth.

Since Kindergarden I've been going here. I like it here alot. I'm going into the 9th grade so that means High Schools next. I hope is works out. So I'll just see were this goes from aug.25 and on till the end of the year and might or might not move. I enjoy the staff and pupils here. I don't know about High School yet though. Good Principals for elementary-Middle School, I have no clue about High School really.

Our daughter has thrived in Bullard High School, and I couldn't be happier about relocating here from Tyler. I can't think of any other high school in our area that does a better job.

You would be hard pressed to find a staff (including both our old and new principals) that so genuinely cares about our kids. Adding to the overall exceptional quality, our technology is second to none for a district of our size and our clubs and opportunities are growing every year. Where else would you be able to attend a county livestock show in our own on-campus barn, then take a stroll through our wildlife habitat? Or catch a play in our new theater or a 3A foootball game on a turf field? Or find students logging in hundreds of hours at a local food pantry, collecting tons of recyclable paper or hosting a local Special Olympics? BHS strives to offer its students the very best in educational and extra-curricular opportunities while nurturing compassion and a sense of community. THAT is a sign of an excellent school district!

This school is lacking in overall quality. It seems to get worse every year.

This school is very over rated. I suppose good teachers are hard to come by these days.

This school is very over-rated. Some good teachers but most not good at all. In my opinion, some students are singled out & harrassed by teachers.
