Battle Ground High School Reviews

Battle Ground High School, the largest of two high schools within the Battle Ground School District, is the school in which I currently attend. Having transferred from another district, I am relatively disappointed with the capabilities of this district. With a month long strike to start the year, the district continually faces economic hardship, straining the already strained schools. This school also has the lowest attendance rate within Washington State, as related to me by teachers.

This school has gotten run down over the years compared to the close neighboring high schools. Small classrooms with old and no longer passionate teachers make the environment hard to stand. If you have an interest in school, this is not the place for you, many students slack off and do not do their work. The counselors are barely tolerable and not helpful for college planning or financial resources. Overall the best thing about this school is that it is right in town.
I only attended one year (my freshman year) at Battle Ground High School but I've been involved with their extra-curricular activities for over four years. Academics wise, Battle Ground is pretty average. The teachers are very passionate about their subjects with only a few exceptions. Programs such as sports and band are well supported and are really geared towards student inclusion and participation. The music program, in particular, is excellent and a staple of the school. Besides the band, the jazz band is one of the best around and is the crowning star of Battle Ground's extracurriculars. Overall, Battle Ground is a pretty average high school academics-wise where you'll more likely than not find teachers genuinely interested in what they're teaching, but it's after school hours when BGHS really shines.
