From my high school experience, Big Spring High School was an excellent school. They offer AP and honors classes for the students who are eager to learn and up for a challenge. They also offer dual credit courses at Howard College for juniors and seniors. I have taken all of these classes and have loved everything about them. The teachers and college professors go above and beyond for their students to learn the material. They also have a handful of clubs that you can join. I was in art club for 1 year and interact club for 3 years. Overall, this school and the teachers I had have prepared me for my future!

I attended Big Spring High School for four years, to which I can say I have a well developed understanding of the school. The school has an excellent desire to increase their extracurricular presence within the district. Being apart of the Choir program within these four years, I can say with pleasure that BSHS provided me with the ability to be apart of an amazing program with well-rounded leadership and tight knit communal values.
The school pride is wonderful but a lot of the kids are horrible. There is a fight every other week and we can't even use the restrooms because someone is always messing up the privilege. The teachers are really good unless they are a coach, which in that case they are suspect to favoritism. The athletic department has gone down as well. Since most of the students do not commit to school, the football team does not do very well. As for girls athletics, the coaches have too friendly relationships which cause favoritism.
