Bradley-Bourbonnais C High School has made many improvements just in the four years that I have attended. For example, there is now a 25 minute period in the day where students can sign up to see any of their teachers and receive help for a class! Also BBCHS has amazing spirit when it comes to sporting events. The lunch food is super tasty and all teachers and kind and helpful toward students.

This school is excellent in terms of student life. Sports games are great, academics are great if you take the initiative, teachers genuinely care about their students. However, due to the changing grading system and academic standards, students aren't as college ready as those from other high schools and the lack of college resources available to the students is unfortunate and could use improvement. I was lucky enough to have a work ethic allowing my adjustment at a tough college to be slightly easier. However, students who are lacking in inspiration, guidance or a role model in their education fall behind. First generation college students are essentially left behind as well in their search for schools and the college appointment times are during busy periods of the day where students don't want to miss their classes. This school gave me lots of memories, but very little preparation for college or the real world.
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.
