I really like this school. I've moved to alot of different schools, and I really like this one. There are fights here and there, but it isn't that bad. I know some other schools are really bad with that kind of stuff. Not this school. And the teachers are really fun, and they want to help you suceed. The extracurricular progams are awesome too. We have really great sports programs. It is just a really great school!!!

I have to agree with Hannah. BSHS is an awesome school to go to- Violence and Discipline arent an issue, most schools around us, its is a major problem. You can feel confident to get up, and go to school every morning, without the fear of some kind of crime or fight happening during the day. The teachers and administrators are very nice, and they take the time to work with the students, not just put them out to learn on their own.

As a student in berkeley springs High School(BSHS) I have to say it is a wonderful school! The teachers really get involved with the students. They want their student to succed. BSHS also has wonderful extraurricular activities. Our sport teams have gone very far in the past few years. Disipline is not an issue for BSHS;the same goes for violence. Berkeley Springs is a very nice town with welcoming people. This results in a wonderful High School. I would tell anyone to go to Berkeley Springs High School.
