As a senior, I've seen a lot of changes come in and out of Breathitt County High School. Over the past couple of years, safety has improved with the installation of a security vestibule and parking passes for all students and faculty. The teachers have adapted new ways to connect with students and better their connection with them.

I liked how nice everyone is at my school, even the teachers. They will always make sure that there students are okay and happy. The students are also very nice, always helping out other students or staff. The school is also very clean.
As a senior at Breathitt County High School I have a lot to say about this place. I can say I have enjoyed my time here overall. They were a lot of cons about being a student in this school system. My Junior year we had more bomb threats than anything. They have improved their policies, such as being able to walk across the stage no matter if we have 6 unexcused or 10. Before this year seniors couldn't walk across the stage at graduation if they had missed more than 6 unexcused that year. These are some of the bad things that I have experienced over the years. Some good things are that the teachers don't mind to teach you one on one. They know when we are struggling. Our new principal is a kind lady and has done so many things for our school such as: give us a pep rally regularly and give us a day for our clubs. Over all my time at Breathitt County High school has been just fine.
