This is my fourth and final year attending Blythewood High and my high school experience, including the teachers and friends I’ve met in these four years have been nothing short of amazing! Our community is very small but we have big spirit and hearts. I’m amazed every year by our school’s contribution to the community and our achievements in different departments. As excited as I am for this to be my last year and final high school semester until graduation, I am going to miss Blythewood so much.

As a student, I've had a great experience at Blythewood High School. The academics are amazing and sought to challenge each student and push them to the best of their abilities. Our sports teams have many region and state titles as well as intense competition from other schools. The community present at Blythewood is one of a family, everyone is friendly with one another and there are always people and teachers to go to if you ever need something!
Blythewood high school is one of the best schools I’ve attended. There are a ton of different classes, courses in graphic design and medical science, dual enrollment, AP, you name it. Boys and girls teams for several sports are available. The food is not great or varied so I highly recommend packing lunch, there are usually microwaves for student use. Many students are involved in the arts, like band, chorus, orchestra, and drum ensemble. The JROTC classes are thriving. Plenty of college and career readiness services. There aren’t a lot of clubs outside of sports and art courses like chorus or theater rehearsals. I’ve never had any problems with bullying or harassment. The atmosphere is fairly harmonious, that said I don’t have any social media, so I may be unaware of potential cyber bullying. Overall I’d feel perfectly find sending my kids to Blythewood, and it’s considered one of the best schools in the area.
