Attending Bismarck-Henning High School provided me with some great experiences from activities and sports, a connection to learning, and helpful accommodations. BHHS offers many clubs, activities, and sports. I am involved in the dance team and Key Club, among the many other options available.Through the dance team I have danced at community events and I have learned to support my school. With the Key Club, we volunteer at events in our area. Volunteering has given my amazing experiences of helping my community that I will remember. In my classes, the teachers are always sure to explain topics thoroughly so that students will learn closely and engage in participate. Also, teachers at BHHS are always helpful in accommodating to different students. Whether it be learning, being able to focus, or testing issues, BHHS teachers are always willing to help and work with a student to fit their needs. Overall, my experience at Bismarck-Henning High School has been enjoying and safe.

I've enjoyed being a student at BHHS. The school offers a variety of classes, activities, and sports for the busy student. Among the classes offered, they have partnered with the local community college to offer dual enrollment options at 1/2 price. This option is only offered to the Senior class. In addition, most of the Senior class graduates in December, so students are only allowed to take advantage of this benefit for half of their Senior year. At other schools in the county, this option is available to Juniors and Seniors.
Sports play a huge part of the community in Bismarck with football being the primary sport for the school. The whole community comes together to enjoy Friday night football, wearing their Bismarck blue and rooting on their hometown favorites, the Blue Devils.
Bismarck-Henning High School gave me the best high school experience possible. The teachers knew your name and were always willing to help if it was asked for. As a football player, I got to experience the thrill of small town competition, and Bismarck fans were truly the best. The atmosphere always felt like students wanted to be there.
