    "strong school. Both of my children have attended BHS and were extremely involved representing their school. The school offers many opportunities for growth and invlovement. Security is good and a priority is safety! Tradition runs deep"

    "The band and orchestra program has been struggling for years- great opportunities but no administrative support other than lip service. Sports reign and academics are given enough due to look good on paper. The real needs of the students are overlooked in a pursuit of the Driller Tradition. They want a band- at football games.
