I like my school because everyone has great school pride and is there to support everyone we like to go big or go home and love where we come from. The school has a lot of support behind it not only from the students and parents but from the community, we all like to be very involved and may the community come together and be there for one another. I defiantly wouldn't want to go to school anywhere else because there honestly isn't a better place to be then a ranger. Our teachers try to connect with us on more then a teaching level they want us to know that they are there for us and if we need anything they are there to help. When going to this school you never feel alone, there is no certain group you are in everyone is friends and are always there to help no matter what.

My overall experience has been great. The teachers care about every student no matter what their situation is. They care about every student on a personal level and are always willing to help with any problem a student might have. There are many classes available for a smaller size high school. Although, the options for clubs are very limited. I would recommended this high school to anyone interested.
The teachers and administration at BCHS are very kind, considerate, and passionate about teaching. They always put their students first and try to develop a strong relationship with individual students. The only thing that needs improvement is the building condition.
