I've only been going here for about 2 years, and overall I feel like the opportunities are pretty much endless. There is always a chance to experience something whether its a college tour or an inspirational speaker.

Bulkeley high school has a lot to offer for it students. There is so much diversity and choices at bulkeley. No matter what there is always something to do, they provide so many different experiences like volunteer work and clubs that enable students to do hands on work which I feel like should continue. I think some of the changes that could be made, is the organization of the student body. Sometimes students just need a voice to either talk about personal issue or the whole students body and what could be changed around the school.
Bulkeley has great Teachers that really care about what they teach, and make sure that the students understand the topics given. They offer classes that range from personal finance to band to environmental science. Overall everyday life is pretty standard and manageable for the average student.
