BBCHS has an amazing sports program, I played football here for 3 years and every year it gets better and better. Besides the a/c problems the school overall is great! the teachers are involved with students lives as if they were their own parents which can impact one who maybe doesn't receive attention like so at home. The office staff does a great job of implying discipline when and where it is needed. The lunch is your average school lunch, however you have plenty to choose from as additional purchases to satisfy your hunger if you dislike what is being served that day. The grading system is very different and changed all 4 years that I attended the school. I do not feel as prepared as I feel that I should b for college however this school has definitely strengthened me mentally and physically as well as it has prepared me for life after highschool, which is very scary and confusing currently however life is full of challenges and boilermakers embrace challenges.

The teachers here definitely help you follow your path to success. They not only teach what is on their syllabus, but they also inspire students by creating an environment where they can succeed. They teach you the lessons that you need once you go off into the real world. The students here really matter to the teaching staff. This is shown everyday when we walk into our classrooms knowing we can succeed. That’s what every teen needs to know is that they can succeed and the teachers are eager to help them climb the mountain to success!
The teachers create an amazingly supportive and helpful atmosphere. They care about the students and their success. Overall, I’ve actually looked forward to the majority of my classes. However, I’m disappointed that over my 4 years at BBCHS I feel like my class has played the “academic guinea pigs”. The grading systems and rules are constantly changing. It lacks the consistency that I would prefer. Recently, the school built a huge new weight room in which they -very loudly- slam the weights on the ground and blast music. Keep in mind this is bordered by ten classrooms -many have AP and honors classes- that are constantly distracted by the noise. I simply wish BBCHS would be as considerate and appreciative of the academic success of its students as much as students and teachers are.
