    "The teachers, for the most part, are very knowledgeable and if they don't have an answer they will make an effort to get back to you with an answer."

    "The teachers as a whole are great, treating students with respect and always listening to our ideas. However, the science department in particular at Blackhawk High School seems to be lacking interest from students, the teachers are not engaging in the lesson nor very helpful when students have questions. Most all of the teachers at Blackhawk are approachable and easy to talk to, and grade each assignment accurately. Overall, the teachers at this school do a fantastic job getting students involved and understand what they are learning in class, however there are few that students are not in favor of."

    "The AP science classes are woefully lacking in qualified teaching staff. Overall, the math department is only fair. Academics definitely takes a backseat to athletics, and bullying of academically and musically gifted students is ignored by staff. Some teachers and administrators participate in bullying students and/or placing them in dangerous situations."

    "Academics focuses mainly on adequacy. AP science teachers are underqualified. There are two guidance counselors, and one of them doesn't understand what types of classes will be needed for any type of technical major in college. Scheduling classes is a nightmare because this person always defaults to the least challenging class when there is a schedule conflict."

    "Blackhawk has been an overall great high school experience for me so far, being involved with taking pictures for different sports and being a part of the track team I feel has brought me closer to the student body as a whole, and school is more fun and entertaining that way. The annual school musical is one of my favorite things about Blackhawk, it is always performed to perfection, and very exciting to watch. If I could go back I would still want to go to Blackhawk High School, the respect and dignity among teachers and students is unmatched, and I believe that this environment had helped shape me into who I am today."
