Outside of the Governor's school program, there is little in Bluestone that prepares students for college. Notwithstanding, the administration is trying to implement an AP program so there is some improvement in the quality of the education. The school is not very clean and absolutely needs work there. Two positive things about Bluestone are the teachers and the existence of clubs and sports which make attending Bluestone tollerable.

Bluestone is a very poor school so they make due with what they have. The teachers are just like any other teachers. I like the sports program at Bluestone. Bluestone has very good student athletes that don’t get into a lot of trouble. I would like the restrooms to be fixed. Some of the toilet seats are broken and they flood easily. There is also writing all over the stall doors and walls. The hallways and classrooms are always dirty. Some classrooms even have mold. The doors going into the schools are broken as well. What I like about Bluestone is that they offer a bunch of extracurricular activities. Chess club, Beta, Sports, Spanish Club, Robotics, and a bunch of other clubs are offered at this school.
I would like to see the academics become more challenging! I would like to see more clubs and organizations. Also, the teachers should be more qualified. There should be better resources. There should also be better resources for students going on to college. They should offer college ready courses to better prepare students for college.
