I am a former student of BHHS and a business student who was placed at the office I work (schools) as a Coop student. I was in FBLA went to compete at state and nationals. To this day I still volunteer and serve on committees and sporting events, even after 35 yrs being gone. Have always loved this school and it was the best times of my life and educational background. The principal is all in it for the students of the school, he cares about them and how their life is going, the community and the county. We may be a small school but with a lot of heart and great programs at our school.

Parents and students need to read HOMESCHOOLING FOR COLLEGE CREDIT by Jennifer Cook DeRosa and apply its lessons to transform any BHHS course into a college credit course. This works by acquiring appropriate study guides for Advanced Placement (AP), College-Level Examination Program (CLEP), Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support (DANTES), and other placement credit tests related to classes already required at BHHS. Not only will these guides strengthen mastery of the BHHS material, they will prepare students to take and pass these tests for college credit. Moreover, worry over seeking a "better education" elsewhere vanishes once you learn how to get a better education right in your own back yard.
The school is decent. The academics overall are lackluster. There are a few exceptions, however, for teachers that are suited for far better schools. William Farnsworth and wife Lindsey are far and away the best teachers I have ever had the privilege to study under. I also had other teachers that I enjoyed learning from, primarily my other English teacher Leaann Norton or my Weight Training coach Michael Mays.
