    "So, here's the deal: As a graduate of BHS, I find it hard to rate this school on the whole; but rather, each student's experience with individual teachers will more likely shape his or her experience than anything else. That said, I shouldn't complain; I ended up graduating at the top of my class and currently attend a university ranked in the top 30 in America for my major. Several of my teachers were excellent. However, I also credit my GIEP and individual work (ie taking classes independently and teaching myself by reading textbooks). Although that skill is useful, especially for science/engineering-minded students, the Math dept. is weak at best , the computer science dept. is incredibly strong, and the English dept., save for honors English and AP, is totally useless."

    "I graduated from Blackhawk and have since gone on to Penn State and received a degree in Computer Engineering and currently work for the government. My major required extensive knowledge in math and science and I felt Blackhawk provided me with the knowledge I needed to succeed. Good School."

    "I've had 3 daughters in this school who were all disappointed. The first two left after one year, opting for Cyber School. The largest complaint was the favoritism and lack of reality to the drug problem among students. There is a lot of unnecessary bullying by sports members that the faculty turns a blind eye to. We have been through several school districts in the United States and this one is the worst I have entered so far. Don't feel the quality of education is there and locals like to keep the school the way they had it in the 70's. Over all highly disappointed in the high school...it could be run better if some families that are the 'powers that be' were not so dominating and the school not so accomodating to them."
