    "They have now dropped all French classes and the decent Spanish teacher is teaching ESL at the grade-school. They finally fired the Pre AP biology teacher and several Pre AP history teachers that should have never been hired in the first place, much less had their contracts renewed after the first year! Some of the Pre AP teachers moved to the local community college where they continue teaching in a lacklustre manner. The English department is a disaster. Reading essays for a local contest was painful... the students have not been taught how to write well. The only decent math teacher is so bitter about still being up there (unable to get a job in another district) that she has a condescending sour attitude that has ruined her ability to effectively teach. They require the freshman to declare a "track" and force them to take only the classes offered for that area of focus. College bound seniors have a hard enough time declaring majors their freshman year....now a 13-14 year old has to decide? If you accept a job in Borger, consider living in Amarillo where your children can attend a better school and you commute to work..."

    "We looked at all of the schools in the area. We picked Borger High School because of their high test scores on the state tests and how many college classes that they offer."

    "I have a freshman at BHS. My child is in mostly Pre AP classes and has excellent teachers. They do now offer PreAP Biology and newly completed science classrooms should help. Concerns: Limited choice in Advanced classes and scheduling does not facilitate students being able to take all advanced classes (they schedule them across from each other.) Language program is weak. Only Spanish and French I & ii are offered. III is currently offered but is at risk of being cut. Administration does not support language program although 3rd year is required for Distinguished Achievement diploma. Administration very defensive and dismissive about parent involvement. Advanced teachers are excellent. They work very well with parents and students who care about their education. Band program is fabulous. Debate/drama/choir also excellent. Beautiful new auditorium/choir/band halls. College Prep very weak. School needs to increase focus on college bound kids and academic achievement/scholarship."

    "Schools were a deciding factor in my move to Borger. My three children have thrived in an atmosphere of trust and acceptance. One has a learning disability, but her teachers are generous with their time, ready to modify and individualize, enabling her to be successful with the regular-ed curriculum--They come in early, stay late--several teachers even eat lunch with students who want to come in for extra help. My children's teachers, coaches, and music directors have all been excellent role-models, as well."

    "Borger High School is the worse school in the state of Texas.There is no help for the parents no concern for the students. These people that run this school are only concerned with their paycheck more than educating our children.Do not put your child in these peoples hands they will destroy your kid just run run away as fast as you can.Take them to fritch or stinnett. They are real and care."
