Bakersfield Christian High School Reviews

BCHS was a fantastic high school to attend. Combining a Christian education with a rigorous academic path to completely prepare students for college is an extremely difficult task, but BCHS executed this mission perfectly. The administration and staff here are incredible and always greet you with a smile. In recent years, BCHS began a rigorous training course for all students in preparation for the SAT test. Because of this, our school has scored higher than the national average. Finally, the athletic piece of BCHS ties the school together. I myself participated all four years on the swim team. Every sports team has achieved higher by our senior year than when we started our freshman year, and the trend is still leaning upward.

I love BCHS! It’s not for everybody of course but as for preparing a student for whats to come in the future with college, i think the school does an amazing job overall.
The atmosphere of a small school experience is a very unique and helps build a sense of unity with your community. You are able to bond more closely with your class as a whole and are able to fully understand what they are going through and their experiences in life as well. I would like to see a change in the school to put a greater focus on sports other than football and basketball, that they would put more funding into sports like swim and softball.
