Bayonne High School Reviews

Bayonne High School is an educational institution where the concept of "whatever you put in, you get out" resonates with many. Yes, there are great opportunities to join gangs, take drugs, and get pregnant. However, if you are a studious individual there are many opportunities for you. We have so many great teachers here that genuinely care about their students. Of course there are some bad apples, but most of my teachers were great. If you take advanced courses we get LOTS of homework. There are many opportunities to join certain student organizations ranging from the Female Empowerment Association to Varsity Football. Everyone can find a place for themselves here. However, we do have a prominent "fighting" culture, and our hallways are constantly packed by students, which is an enormous safety hazard. Otherwise, Bayonne High School is a great educational institution.

Bayonne High School has countless clubs, teachers are very involved with their students, and they care for their students to learn and gain a full experience in high school. The guidance counselors especially are very involved with students and make sure to get them started on the college application process early, to make sure that students have all the requirements to apply to their dream school. However, I wish for this school to gain a little bit more security and better food in the cafeteria although I know it is difficult since this is a huge school.
Bayonne High School can be considered a good school, I like how diverse the school is and how some teachers can be helpful to the students. There are friendly people at school, but there is also very rude people who don’t care about the school. The boys bathroom is the dirtest place to go in the school, because the boys bathroom was not renewed, like the girls was. I would like the safety at my school to change, for students in the future. The food should also change because there is not as much food to pick from, and it’s unfair for people who are vegetarian.
