My experience at BCHS in its entirety was okay. I have very fond memories of a select couple of courses/extra-curriculars, but overall my four years there was mediocre. Some - NOT ALL - of the faculty seemed to not care at all for the well-being of individual students. As far as knowledge goes, the faculty were well equipped. The student body was generally negative and showed little interest in being there, aside from the few who had large aspirations for their futures. I truly hope that in the future the guidance department tries harder to care for and accommodate students with mental illnesses.

I personally love my school. The teachers are so supportive and caring and are all really good at their jobs. However, I would personally like to see our school be more inclusive. Our diversity here is low, which results in lots of students using racial or overall discriminatory slurs both at school and outside of it. Helping to make our school more inclusive would help to make our schools' small minority population feel more welcome.
When I moved here, I was welcomed by students and staff. While some of the staff can slack, or be sub-par, the majority are fantastic! The athletics are ran well.
