Bainbridge High School Reviews
After four years here, this will be one of the most memorable parts of my life. I have made great friends, great adversaries, and a long list of very knowledgeable contacts. Just about every teacher here is very passionate about what they teach and are happy to help with school work, help outside of school, or to just genuinely have a conversation with. I consider myself to have accomplished many important things at this school, with the help of its amazing staff and other parent/faculty support. They have set me up to be the best I can be in my future!
Bainbridge Island is known for its school district, and Bainbridge High School has been ranked in the top 300 schools in the nation, which comes as no surprise to anyone who has attended. One of BHS' greatest assets is its faculty. The teachers and counselors are some of the kindest, most passionate individuals I have had the privilege to study under, and although BHS has had a number of principals in the past decade, our current principal Ms. Haizlip is the most driven, attentive, and friendly of them all. BHS is a sheltered place, which is both a weakness and a strength; we live on a very safe island, so violence at school is nonexistent, but this shelter is also a bubble that serves to blind some students to the harshness of reality. BHS prepares its students extensively for the academic rigors of college. If there was one suggestion of change I would make, it would be to be more upfront about the rigors of daily life outside our Island bubble as well.
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).
