    "The parents all help with whatever their student is involved in the best ways that they can."

    "Most students are very involved at BHS. The school focuses heavily on sports, which is sometimes frustrating for the music program that does amazing yet receives no recognition. There is a heavy concentration of LDS (Mormon) students, and while that doesn't affect much, they're still just people, lots of students judge the mormon students and call them a clique or stuck up and there is a major split between the religious students and the non religious students. I'm sure it goes both ways i just see a lot more Mormon hate than the other way around. There are a lot of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender students at BHS. I feel like they separate themselves from others more than others leave them out, but there are a few highly involved students of that community and they aren't left out because of it. A few of the students in that community are very resentful of anyone who isn't LGBT, which is very weird considering they're looking for acceptance of their sexual orientation and yet aren't extending that same courtesy to those who are straight. It's a little backwards. There are Native American and Latin American clubs and scholarships, but nothing for any other ethnicity."

    "Most often the teachers who teach core classes don't know what they're teaching. We have a lot of coaches who teach because its required, and while they might know the subject, there are a lot of problems with teaching it so that the students can understand. The math program a BHS is terrible. Either you understand math on your own and advance through the math classes through high school, but the teachers make it hard, or you're completely lost and give up on math around sophomore year. Scheduling isn't at all about what classes the student needs to prepare for life, its about what works best for the counselors. There are ALWAYS schedule problems. Every year. With every student. And the counselors are really difficult about changing around classes. Sometimes you practically have to have a parent come in and make them change things around because they'll just refuse sometimes. The counselors do more scheduling than actual counseling. If you're an honors student, you can have up to 6 hours of homework a night. Plus extra curricular activities (i.e. sports or clubs), family time, possible church commitments, meals, chores, possibly a job, and that hardly leaves any time for sleep. Most students get maybe 4 or 5 hours of sleep a night. And this leaves no room for fun or time with friends which is crucial to help relieve stress. The last three months of the school year i developed Generalized Anxiety Disorder because of all of the stress in my life, and it made all of my classes extremely hard. i didn't know that that's what i had at the time and i just thought that i was stupid and lazy and emotional and that i had failed at life. I was scared to tell my teachers or my counselors how i felt because i thought they would just call me out and tell me that i was making excuses. I wish that i had been more comfortable with my teachers so that they could have helped me make accommodations for what i now know was my anxiety disorder."

    "While I love most of the teachers at BHS, only a few of them actually care about what they're teaching the students. Some of the teachers know what they're teaching, only are unable to communicate it to the students in an effective way. Others don't even know what they're teaching and are only teaching that subject because they were made to in order to be a coach or some other position like it. Only a very few of the teachers are able to teach in a way that the vast majority of their students understand, and they help those that struggle. I don't feel like I can approach my teachers or counselors for help because they don't seem to know what they're doing."
