I have been a student at Basehor-Linwood High School for four years, and I have had a very great experience in my time there. I participate in a variety of activities, in which all excel at a high level. The teachers at BLHS are all very willing to work with students and help them succeed. My math teacher, for example, gets to school early, stays late, and makes herself available during our advisory to ensure that we are grasping concepts in her class. I have helped start two successful businesses in high school, and I will cherish those experiences forever. By doing real-world hands-on learning I have gained amazing skills that will serve me well in my college and professional career.

This high school really made me who I am. Through the support I got from students and staff, I figured out exactly what I want to do with my life. The community is amazing. Everyone is supportive of one another which is something I needed growing up. The classes are challenging but manageable. The teachers are encouraging and helpful. The student body is positive and uplifting. Basehor-Linwood High School simply motivates me to be the best I can be. I love the environment and I genuinely get excited to come to school every day. I would not be the person I am if I'd attended any other school. Basehor-Linwood has given me opportunities and experiences I couldn't have gotten anywhere else. This high school will always be special to me and I'm actually sad to be leaving this community when I graduate. I love Basehor-Linwood and I'm thankful for all of the amazing opportunities it offers to students of all interests.
You can go very far if you are dedicated. There is plenty of courses offered from the school that can get you into sophomore year of college after graduating. The staff is willing to work with students on issues in school. There is also plenty of opportunities here, but if you don't see anything recommend it to the staff and they will try to make it a thing. Academics aren't the only thing the school is renowned for the powerlifting team is great and many other sports. There is also many non-sport training that the school has to offer.
