    "I am pleased to see the parent portal that you have instituded so we as parents can keep a daily watch on our childrens grades, homework, lunches and events. However I do see a bad review coming due to all the fighting that has been happening with regularity. Would be interested in knowing what is being done to ease this seemingly every day occurence."

    "I am a current BHS student and I do not enjoy it. The teachers (Aside from a select few) will not hesitate to single you out. The students are also very socially bigoted. Some of the teachers just don't seem to understand and hesitate to give help when its needed. And the students who are respectful toward the staff are treated wrongly due to appearance, beliefs, or even social status. I can't wait to get out."

    "I went to BHS during 1999-2003 I loved the school it was a school where you fit in the teachers were awesome especially my favorite teacher Mrs. Lens she was without a doubt the reason I stayed in school and I wouldn't change a thing about the school or the teachers."

    "This is a great school for extracurricular activities. There is a club or sport for any kind of person and their interests. The academic quality is good, but the homework load is a little on the heavy side, as well as the amount of tests given. The downside to the school is the lack of parent involvement and the safety. The officials do try, Mr. Turner does great and there is a police officer on duty at all times, but still a few fights manage to happen throughout the year, but what school doesn't have a few fights? Even with these two things in mind, I think BHS is an excellant school to have a child graduate from."

    "BHS has a bad habit of pushing too much work on students and then turning their back on them when they need help. Hard to access teachers. No follow up on student programs. All of the sports programs involve politics, there is more athletic talent walking the halls than there are on the field or courts. Kids are let down and dont try out for sports because of the politics, but its like that everywhere,isnt it?"
