I started at BHHS when I was a freshman. First time being in the district, as well as new to Tumwater. Before this I went to Curtis Junior High. However, the difference between the two is that Black Hills was far more welcoming than that of Curtis. Having been constantly bullied at Curtis, this was a welcoming change for me. Academics are also easier to grasp and the teachers are very helpful and awesome, even if a few do pick favorites. Having a GPA of 2.5 at Curtis even with working as hard as I could, a GPA of 3.5 at Black Hills marks one of the reasons of how teachers try to make their students understand the material. There's a ton of school spirit, the Fine Arts Program is amazing. There isn't a social hierarchy of cliques (unlike Curtis) and the student body tries to get everybody involved and no one is left out. There's something for everybody. The best thing about this school is Perception Day (If you go to BHHS, you know what I mean). As a senior, I'm more than glad to be graduating soon from a school that can have a positive and safe environment. The only minor flaw is that there's not too much diversity. Other than that, BHHS all the way!

As a former student of Black Hills High School I can confidently say that the teachers and student base as an absolute delight to work and spend time with. Unfortunately, the main office staff and online class superviser still have not figured out how to help students and their families in a polite manner. In fact, sometimes they are downright rude.

This school has great student community, and the teachers are fabulous. Academically it's a wonderful place to grow. However, if you're a looking for a school with administrative leadership and support this isn't a good place to send your children. The admin staff are a joke. Everyone in the office is an absolute nightmare to work with, from the condescending principal right down to the rude attendance staff. Skip the office BS and go right to your child's teachers if you need any sort of information about what's going on at school.

I have attended two different High Schools now and Black Hills is by far the better of the two. Black Hills has everything you could want for your child or for yourself as a student. Black Hills next task would be to take the next step to where everyone in all there activities and teachings has a confidence about. A confidence that they know they really are the best.

i think that bhhs is a good school it has academics and after school clubs and lots of sports programs. There are problems though it smells bad and some of the students skip and dont really care about anything. Also there are a lot of projects to try to get the students involved and theres plays/film festivals.

The staff at BHHS do an excellent job with my daughter, who has autism. The entire school staff has worked hard to make her successful in her new setting. The educators' accomodations to her IEP have been supported to make her successful without making her dependent.

BHHS is an excellent high school--smaller than the 'mega high school' I'd attended years ago, with a more personalized and relational environment. All my interactions with teachers and administrators (especially the principal and football coach) have been very positive. There is a high level of parent involvement at the school as well.

This HS proves that teachers still care and that students can make a difference in higher test scores etc. My boy loved this HS, Hank, and everyone loved Hank. Keep it up!
