Bourbon County High School Reviews
Bourbon County High School was an average high school. There was lots of things to participate in but most of them didn’t strike me as “creative” or “unusual”. It was a normal high school with normal people, but there was a downfall. Most of the teachers did care about what students learned but others just handed grades out to students. Giving undeserved grades to students doesn’t help them learn the material it just helps them have the easy way out of high school. Overall Bourbon County wasn’t and isn’t an awful school it just needs minor improvements like many other schools do.
BCHS is a wonderful school with many programs, clubs, and opportunities. They are very anti-bully and prevent a lot of bullying from happening. It is a very clean and up-to-date on appliances and resources. Plus, there are a lot of different food choices. I have very much enjoyed my stay at BCHS, but they could do more student spirit activities like pep rallies.
While attending Bourbon County, I was able to have a fairly rounded education and I was offered some very good opportunities in dual enrollment classes and classes that prepared me for specialized real world skills in technology. The teachers I had while attending were very interactive and helpful in encouraging and pushing me toward my own dreams as a writer. However, while I did have a good time with the friendships that I forged and the educational opportunities that I was offered, there were quite a few flaws with technology and some of the regulations the administration would be concerned with. Most computers in the school, along with the wireless internet, were very difficult to use or didn't work at all. Much like many schools, the school's administration and staff seemed to be concerned with things that were not important to education or things that would not be distracting if they didn't mention them. I noticed this happening to female students and people who wore hats.
