Bardstown High school is a great school where you can be yourself while feeling a sense of community! They allow you to grow into a young adult while experiencing the world thru diversity, service, compassion for fellow students, and while also applying yourself academicly. Each staff member supports students through encouragement, dicipline, and challenging one to be their best self. True sense of family is shown in clubs and sports, building each other up in both successes and failures. Even though this is my last year at Bardstown, I am confident the skills, character and friends I have received from being a student there, will push me forward to be an amazing young adult in college and in life.

Poor administration, dresscode is completely useless and unnecessary because it is not enforced, disrespectful students, too much of a basic curriculum... it's not one of the best high schools. The cleanliness of the school is terrible aswell.
The teachers tried their best with the resources that they had. The principal did not have the students best interest at heart, he basically wanted us in and out.
