Senior High is the best! No matter who you are, you can find a place to feel comfortable. That best thing about Senior is its diversity. We have students from all cultural, backgrounds, and different wealth of the family. Most if not all the teachers are great and make it fun to learn. Every student can perform at a level that is comfortable to them, because there are classes that can accommodate fast, average, or slower learners. It is just an amazing school and I am glad I made the decision to go there.
This school is very dedicated to its students. I am one of the students who has a very unenjoyable time at school, as I myself have never really appreciated America's education system. Yet, this school has been extremely amazing and has done a lot for my student life and myself. They have welcomed me very openly since I transferred here in my sophomore year. I am extremely happy with Billings Senior High School. Go Broncs!
Senior High is an incredibly diverse school in many aspects. I believe that nearly anyone could find a group of people to get along with at Senior, even if that group were to be the janitors, or special ed. staff. They all want to see the kids succeed at senior, no matter the circumstances. The aspects that I believe should be changed concern funding mostly. The sports teams (namely football) receive new sports gear and equipment on almost a bi-yearly basis. While the music and special education departments both suffer for new staff as well as replacement of equipment such as music stands that are easily as old as I am.
