The freshman and sophomore class are an outstanding group both academically and in athletics. This should be a fun four years.

With one exception it was just right. One English teacher gave to much on occasion which fostered a dislike for the course and for literature as a whole.

This school gives respect to the students and so it gets respect in response. The student body overall seems to be very happy and optimistic.

I have been very pleasantly surprised. With one exception my son has had great teachers who challenge him and demand a lot from him. I am fortunate that he is driven to succeed and I have to do little prompting. Academics appear to be very strong and the curricular activities fun and well attended. The Nordic and Track teams had a huge influx of participants this year which speaks well for both the students and the school. The one bad experience was a teacher who demanded a lot but basically we found out that she took most of her material right off the internet. It appeared like she was a hard worker until we found that out. Once my son did it was easy for him to master what she wanted.

This is a fabulous school. The principal is a kind, ambitious leader who has empowered his colleagues to create a welcoming, challenging, empathetic environment. Dual enrollment classes are ubiquitous and they have just started Academies within the school itself. We have a choice of high schools and BUHS has been a great one.

Buhs offers a wide range of opportunities. A great education is available for students who push themselves to go far - yet a student who wishes to disappear will. Buhs offers classes from AP college level to the extremely basic. If you don't graduate it has no reflection on your intelligence, merely your laziness. BUHS has a wide variety of classes for those interested in various postsecondary pursuits. The school has an gigantic art department(Which I never set foot in) band, chorus, dance and theater programs. It offers advanced science in Bio, AP Physics, although I'm disapointed to have only been able to take elementary chemistry, the program is small. The math dept offers everything up to AP calculus, in two formats- a traditional and a problem solving based meathod. In the sports sector, BUHS offers almost everything... Overall, I enjoyed my expirence at BUHS immensely, and will always say: 'Viva the Colonel'
