Blaine High School is the third largest school in the state of Minnesota, but the BEST school for students. BHS is filled with wonderful teachers that push students to the next level of academic prepareness for colleges and universities. There is no high school I would rather be apart of than BHS! The generous variety of sports and clubs present at BHS creates a great environment for people to bond and make life long friends. I will always remember BHS and I will always be proud to call myself a Bengal!
Blaine is a great school, I loved attending here and the academic aspect is great. I really appreciate all the time that they put into their students and the staff. Sports here are great and there is a great number of diversity with no segregation or discrimination.
Overall Blaine is a great school that I am happy that I attended, the school improved my education and preparation for college!
My experience at Blaine has been rather fulfilling, the majority of staff are understanding and caring individuals who provide a welcoming atmosphere. There are many challenging courses and tough-love teachers which create a larger opportunity to grow. I'd like to see the focus of the school shift a little further away from appearances and sports ad onto academics and clubs that further round students out. I'd also love to see the school look more toward skills for real life applications, such as grammar classes and classes on financial management and applying for jobs and financial aid. I believe this school has the potential to create many amazing people.
