    "This school has been a second home to me. The musical every year involves up to 150 people each year, & that has been my safe haven. All of the clubs are engaging, & school spirit really seems to be going up. I love BVA. #LeopardPride"

    "Most of the teachers really do go above and beyond when it comes to helping students out! Many of the teachers lead after school clubs and activities, so it's like a huge family. However, there are always those few teachers who go into the room for their 42 minute class, lecture, check homework, & say goodbye when the bell rings."

    "It's my Alma mater but has changed for the worse since I was there. Majority of staff is under 40. Communication between guidance,staff & parents is awful. Administration focuses on politics & football & less on fixing leaking ceilings, teaching proper subject material, proper study habits & how to pass the Keystones! Teachers need to stay in the classrooms & teach and not in meetings all the time. They know how to teach. Let them do it!! Get some older, wiser & more experienced in years as Principals would be a change. Maybe students would learn to respect their elders more instead of someone who reminds them of their older brother. It was a huge difference when we had Mr. Kubin/Mrs. MacDonald in 1990! Had a lot more control and proper education that prepared us for college or trade school. Probably had less drop out rates but I'm sure our staff cared more about our students learning then they did about getting in trouble for not hitting their quota as far as how much subject matter they did not cover regardless of what the State says they have to cover."

    "It's not the worst school in the world, but it could be a lot better. We have great teachers but everything else could be different."
