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.
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.
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.
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.
