Its an overall good school, but they vocus too much on athletes and not the fine arts. Robotics has made it to worlds and still gets no funding, The Thespians all made it to nationals but doesnt have enough money to go compete, the Advanced Art class is painting murals for the school and doesn't have enough money for good paint, etc. The school needs to learn on budgeting properly and not spending it on just the athletes and things we do not need. For example, the projectors in the classrooms were not working properly, so the school decided to spend alot of money on flatscreen TVs for every single classroom (even if the teachers dont need it) and they didnt even train the teachers on how to use it. What is even worse is, instead of spending that money to fix the AC units and bathrooms, they used it on TVs, which we could've lived without.

They teacher's often make it feel like they're not happy teaching at Bastrop. Because of their attitude, students aren't as motivated to learn. The atmosphere of the school is rather depressing. There aren't much student involvement activities going on around the school. The safety procedure are slightly flawed. The school overall settles for mediocre.
The school is very laid back and has a pretty diverse selection of students and staff. Most of the teachers are good about teaching to the test and giving real life examples for where these subjects could be used. Some teachers only use worksheets and tests they find online and don’t teach at all they just hand you papers. However some teachers are very good at coming up with their own lessons and worksheets. The school itself needs to be upgraded as it is a very old building and they are running out of space to put students.
