When I went to Bastrop High, I liked the academics. I feel there was a strong push towards academics and a strong learning environment. I took mostly honors classes. I liked the challenge of the classes and the teachers. On the other hand, there was also a strong athletic program, with our football team doing very well and growing stronger, as well as girl's sports too. I happened to run cross country and track for the school and loved every minute of it.

During my four years of attending Bastrop High School, I can honestly say that I have enjoyed my classes. I have enrolled in all Honors classes as well as Dual Enrollment classes to help me prepare for college. When I graduate in May, I will have completed enough college credit classes to start as a Sophomore!
As an alum looking back, there were teachers who cared about their students and prepared us for life after high school. However as a whole there was not much motivation for everyone to do their best; the focus was more on sports than academics. Funds and resources were limited. There is a lot of potential that comes in and out of those doors. All they need is attention, focus, funds, and positivity. Extracurriculars were great places to bloom and become leaders and form bonds and connections with people who may not be on the same academic level but share similar interests. There was a great JROTC program that really helped prepare students for post-graduation such as college, working, military, etc . Overall there is a lot of work that needs to happen but BHS could be great; it has the students, the teachers, and the capability.
