An admin that encourages student leadership, an efficient & friendly front office staff (which cannot be underestimated), and a solid community of coaches, teachers, parents, and students work together at BHS to build what I have observed to be an extraordinary experience for students. BHS has competent & approachable teachers. Some are even the best of the best (motivating, scholarly, hard-working, dedicated, respected, etc.). Students seem to really love this school & being on its campus. After school, the campus is still a buzz with students involved in sports, music, theatre, performance groups, clubs, decorating the school, etc. The sense of school pride & spirit is rich and the students should be proud of themselves for inspiring this attitude & atmosphere. Parents are also a joint part of the landscape. They regularly volunteer & support various fundraisers, activities, and events. BHS parents are especially supportive of the arts. The admin does not patronize or minimize the concerns of its students (or parents). Instead admin encourages student leadership and for students to take ownership of their education & campus. No school is perfect, but BHS easily gets 5 stars.
