Our youngest of three is currently a junior, and following in the footsteps of his older sisters at Blue Springs High School. We are more than pleased with the attention and interaction shown towards students on an individual, as well as classroom level. Diversity is taught and experienced without being made to feel uncomfortable. The staff and faculty are world-class and down-to-earth, at the same time. Comradery and teamwork seems to be the secret to the success of their athletic programs, and their Nationally recognized Marching Band. Blue Springs High School has proven to be the best-possible choice to prepare our children to successfully meet challenges head-on with confidence and integrity.

Blue Springs High School is one of the largest schools in the Kansas City area. As a result, the campus can at times feel overcrowded. As a senior, I can attest that I see a new face every single day, while this is in no way a problem, it is something to take note of. The faculty is excellent for the for the most part, the general feeling is that teachers really care about the students and the subjects they are teaching. One great thing about BSHS is campus. The school itself has 2 buildings with a beautiful courtyard separating them. This gives the students a special opportunity to get fresh air during passing periods and in the warmer months, lunch.
The administration is amazing, along with the teachers! There is such a variety of courses, any and every student is able to find what they are interested in! There is also a great variety of clubs and activities students can get involved in.
