Bainbridge High School Reviews
BHS truly is a very good school. I have had a wonderful experience with it. Most of the teachers are kind, helpful, and relatable. The school is in a small community, which makes tradition prominent and strong. These traditions, such as going to Seattle for homecoming, make school even more fun. I am a cheerleader which has helped me have a good time in high school because I am very involved. Bainbridge High School has a lot of opportunities, clubs, available classes, etc. The academics are hard but manageable and set you up for success. During my time at BHS there have been some issues with the staff and a teacher, coach, and security guard have been let go for bad things. But, compared to other schools, Bainbridge is very safe and drama-free. It is an excellent place to attend high school (go sparts).
Bainbridge High School has a lot of positives and negatives. The people are generally friendly so as long as you keep your mind open to new experiences you will be okay. The teachers are kind and helpful for the most part and are very willing to support you and ensure your own successes. While it is a very academically driven school, the stress and anxiety levels are quite high but overall my time at BHS was a positive experience.
The facilities and teachers are all great. However, the older art building is not nearly as much up to date as the newer language/math building. Teachers are all fair and easy to talk to. I did find it was hard to get involved in school spirit/activities as an incoming sophomore who had not attended BHS freshman year, I'd have liked to see some more programs meant to keep those types of students involved in the school. Parents are very involved, there are many clubs. The academics are fairly hard. Drugs definitely happen, but it's easy to avoid if you're not looking for it.
