I love my school. There are fun school events in which everyone is included. It is a mix of education and gives the opportunity to have fun with those you know and meet new people. I have a lot of fun everyday and the best laughs. My teachers are amazing role models and also friends to me. I can trust them with anything and they know how to joke around. But, they are also amazing at teaching and assuring you understand the material. There is a lot of diversity but that doesn't stop us from including everyone and ensuring no one is left out. We probably aren't recognized for having the best sport teams, but our athletes put in the best effort and have fun as well. They offer many options to prepare us for college in school and after. The staff is always looking for our best interest and modify rules so that we can be safe on school grounds. Parents get involved in helping and it is a priority for the administration to allow all of the fun music and art electives, along with others.

Basalt High School is a very welcoming place. You feel like you can talk to any teacher about anything, and they would help in a heartbeat. In the past two years, the school has suffered from the death of three students, and has become more of a community because of it. Everyone in the school, staff and students alike, have come together to support each other and to make the community more like a home.
Basalt High School is a great, small school. For the most part everyone knows everyone. The students here are very close and approachable. The majority of students and staff get along. The teachers are great, they work very hard to educate the students as well as they can. But having a larger variety of classes would improve the school and make it even better.
