Basha High School Reviews

Basha has it’s good and bad qualities. If you are not in sports or AP classes, it will ultimately make you feel like an outsider. The art programs do not get as much funding as they should because it all goes to sports. Some of the teachers are wonderful while others don’t even want to teach at all. I had way too many instances where teachers just didn’t care and did nothing but yell at us. Basha is a “too bad” kind of school. Can’t park in the parking lot because kids who didn’t buy the pass take up all the extra spots? Too bad! The most positive things I experienced were with art and agriculture classes. The agriculture teachers are absolutely wonderful and make you feel so welcome. Same goes for the art teachers, they are incredible at giving you advice to help you improve when needed.

Basha was an amazing school to graduate from. I gained life long friendships, and had amazing teachers that helped me grow, and who I am still in touch with today. The school seemed to be hyper focused on the athletic department when I attended, and it could have more diversity among its students, but aside from that, there isn't anything I would want to change. Great school, great memories!
I love Basha High School! I met so many great people and had helpful teachers. The lessons they teach you are great and the teachers always make sure you understand it. One thing i would change about Basha is school spirit. Basha High School students do lack school spirit, but other than that, its a great school!
