Bainbridge Island School District Reviews

Bainbridge High School has excellent facilities and a wide range of clubs and activities for students. The majority of teachers are invested in their students well being and focus on making students college ready. The Bainbridge School district also provides all high school and middle school students with a personal computer during the school year. Despite it's excellent academics, BHS has a significant drug/party culture. We have also had several lock downs, all of witch were handled poorly by administration and lacked good communication with the students.

I am about to graduate from Bainbridge High School after being part of the Bainbridge school system since 5th grade. I've had wonderful experiences during my years of schooling here, mostly due to how much the teachers care about the students and the traditions that Bainbridge Island holds dear. However, I must admit that I was stressed out of my mind for most of my years in Woodward and BHS. This school district is very competitive when it comes to just about everything. Activities seem to be used just to get into college, not to learn or grow from. It has been a great experience to go through such a quality school district because I feel very prepared for college and beyond, but I definitely recognize that BHS is a pressure cooker for many students. Make sure your student is handling their stress in a healthy way.
Bainbridge High School is a pressure cooker. Academics, sports, and other extracurricular activities are emphasized very heavily, and the workload is difficult to manage. The culture of the school is not at all supportive, and almost all of the students are extremely stressed, anxious, and/or depressed. I will be a senior this year at Bainbridge High School. The school's reputation and academic excellence have provided me with many opportunities, for which I am very grateful. However, attending this school has been detrimental to my mental health. I have not enjoyed attending this school, and it is my belief that most other students have not enjoyed their time at Bainbridge High School either.
