This school is by far better than any of the others in the area. The teachers are there for you when you need it and parental involvement is higher than all the others. The sports and extra curricular activities and clubs are much better than MVHS... The teachers here are more than competent and support a learning environment while making the students feel welcome which in turn provides a wonderful stepping stone for students to grow to their real potential.

I am a currently a student at BEHS. It's a great school with an amazing drama department, extra curricular activities, and an amazing athletic department.

This is an okay school because many of these teachers rush their students and time, and school curriculom is very complicated work. I recommend MVHS

As a former student now living in another state, I can tell you that BEHS is a great school. I am just beginning to witness the poor state of affairs in the school district where I live and it cannot compare to BEHS. The key to successful education lies in parental involvement and, as well stated in another posting, the students own outlook and involvement. I look back fondly on my time there and I my kids could attend this school.

This school is without a doubt the worst school my child has ever been to. The staff is totally incompetant, especially the secretaries in the attendance office. If i didnt live so far away, i would send my children to a school in Bellingham. I advise against sending your childrent to this school.

Overall B-EHS is a great school for high schoolers. Not only do they have a great drama department and great athletics, the teachers are great, and there are very few problems on campus.

Lots of opportunities available for kids, good and bad. There are ample sports and music programs and also a lot of drugs and alcohol available. A good environment if you make the right choices. Teaching is basically without reproach. Administration leaves something to be desired.

Some lazy, some ignorant teachers (at least one or two superb ones). No excuse, given fine physical plant.

I'm currently a student attending B-EHS. I've always thought that the key to happy high school years is being involved. Whether it be sports, clubs, band, mentoring, ASB, my high school has always had a place for every student to be involved. B-EHS is great.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Washington used End-of-Course (EOC) examinations to assess students in Algebra I, Geometry, Integrated Math I, Integrated Math II, and Biology. The EOC tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
