Bethel Park High School Reviews

Bethel Park High School is overall a decent school. A mix of good teachers and bad teachers. The administration, however, is quite questionable at times. Making horrible decisions that defy not only common sense but what the student body and teachers would like. The students are fairly decent. They aren't spoiled as much as their peers in nearby school districts and not too rough. Things are often disorganized and require extra effort to get things done. I will probably not remember my time here too fondly nor too badly. It was an average experience.

Some great teachers, district is ranked highly. There are a wide range of classes offered. There also are great sports programs. We also have a new high school that was built just 3 years ago so the facilities are top notch!
This school has a wide array of activities to take part in, for just about anything as well. I have taken part in the activities of BHTV (a student run morning news/TV broadcasting) program, BPHS Stage Crew, and though it's not an official "extracurricular activity", our Symphonic Orchestra takes part in local events outside of school hours. All of these organizations require you to be very involved and often have tough/stressful work, especially during musical for stage crew and preparing for our spring trip in the orchestra, but the work is still fun and the experiences that go with it make up for it. Other activities such as our marching band are very widely recognized as top notch programs, and BPHS is just as known for the marching band as it for its athletics programs like the football team. So whether you're an artsy or musically-inclined student or are into athletics, the extracurricular opportunities are abundant for all!
