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.
Review Billings Senior High School
When I first started there, everything was wonderful. Then after sophomore year, my whole high school experience went downhill. I wish teachers would be more supportive and try to stop bullying more than they do now. Some of the teachers there weren't very good. I taught myself two and a half years of math because most of my math teachers did not care to teach us what we wanted to learn. I honestly had the worst experience at this high school, so I hope what I struggled with eventually changes for future kids.
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!
