Billerica Memorial High School was a place where a multitude of experiences was at our disposal. I for one, am someone who wished that they had taken this into account. I was a sports player, who mainly focuses on schoolwork, but there is so much more. Billerica High School ranges from being on a sports team to join the student council or the robotics club. The teachers at the school take pride in teaching and connecting with the students. There were so many teachers that I could go to to talk with whenever I was feeling down. Sometimes the kids were not the best, but that applies to all schools. One thing that Billerica has is that although many people think the kids are just in clicks if you were genuinely a nice person, you could connect with anybody. The school has just been built so it is very open and clean. Overall, my experience with Billerica High School was great. I just wish that I took advantage of all the opportunities that were free and right in front of my eyes!

Billerica Memorial High School is the ultimate example of community, from caring administrators to amazing teachers and awesome peers! The new building adds a layer of sophistication to the town, yet does not take away from our fundamental identity as a school.
One of my favorite things about BMHS is how collaborative the peers are. Most people are willing to work together and learn from each other, and this is incredibly important in such a polarized world.
While the Biology department is one of the best in the state, I think the biggest front that BMHS needs to improve on is its Chemistry department.
I attended this school from 2008 - 2012. All my instructor were very nice. The only downside was the building was quite old. I know now that they have a new building which is awesome for the current students. I would like to earn my degree and possibly work for the Billerica school systems as I grew up in this humble, small town!
