Very welcoming environment! The administration is very fair and the school has a great sense of community. The fine arts department has many performance opportunities to take advantage of. This school has put me in a great place and I feel very prepared for college. With the amount of clubs and athletics, there truly is a place for everyone.

I love everything about Billerica Memorial high school! Yes, it may be old and falling down but the hall ways and rooms are filled with memories. Memories such as the teachers always asking if your okay or if you need any help. Memories of your friends helping you with homework or even asking you to prom! This school holds great opportunities. (Opportunities that the students such all take!) DECA, internships, athletics, field trips, multiple AP classes, and other classes is only a short list of opportunities that Billerica hosts. Billerica Memorial High School is a fabulous school because of the staff, who are always ready to teach!
I have enjoyed my time at BMHS! I have met some really nice people and formed many friendships. I also have enjoyed the majority of my teachers here. There are some that are too strict or mean or just boring, but for the most part I have had no problems with my teachers. A major reason I enjoyed BMHS so much was because I played sports. Playing sports here gives you a group of friends right away and increases your pride for the school. Somethings that should be changed about BMHS is the overall building. It is very old and falling apart. There is nothing that can be done to fix up the building at this point besides build a new one.
