Ballston Spa Senior High School Reviews
I had a good experience at BSpa High School. They offer a lot of programs for all different kinds of kids from special needs to full IB for those who want that experience. They have a lot of clubs that kids can join such as Odyssey of the Mind, Physics Club, Troupe, Band, Orchestra and more. The sports programs that I was involved in were awesome and there was great support from the Athletic Department. There is something at Ballston Spa High School for everyone!
Ballston Spa High School is a great school. I did not appreciate it at the time... however, since being in college I have come to realize how lucky we are to have so many AP and IB opportunities. A lot of my high school classes covered my Gen Ed requirements in college which has allowed me to double major! Academically, this school is great. (Most) of the teachers are wonderful. They really set you on the right path for a successful future.
It is a really good school, and I had a lot of amazing teachers. The IB program is somewhat unique in this area, but Ballston Spa has it and it's a great program. Lots of sports and clubs to join. The school is really careful about safety, and they've been starting a program where all the students will get chrome books during high school. The cafeteria food is pretty good, and there's even a coffee shop. However, there is low diversity in the student body. That's just the result of there being very low diversity in the area.
