Great school! Teachers are nice and it's fun to be at school. The after school activities can be sparse, but the school is great.

BSTA is a really great school because it is a small community. With small class sizes, teachers are able to focus on each student. The teachers are all very invested in their students and will go to any lengths to help a student that asks. But because it is a small school there aren't a lot of electives or even AP classes. It's hard for students to branch out and discover any interests due to the limited class options.
Beehive is the best school I have been to. Not only is it academically incredible. It is just a fun positive atmosphere. If I could improve one thing I would improve the facilities. In my opinion the real reason why beehive is a great academic school is because o the wonderful teachers!
