Ben Hill County Schools Reviews

The Ben Hill County school system(BHCS) was amazing for me. I started there in kindergarten and graduated from the same system about a year ago. The BHCS has really made it possible for people to raise kids in a small town where there is little violence and a large amount of opportunities, as well as an academically challenging atmosphere. BHC is a system of great culture and respect. While there, I saw a great bond between the students. Everyone was very social and connected. The teachers were very understanding and caring as well. They will do their the best to make sure that you succeed. The administration is also wonderful. They are very connected to the staff, students, and parents. The board of education has one of the best teams I know. They are very open to the community. Overall The BHCS has been a second home to me. I have enjoyed spending my years learning and growing there and I could not have done it without the amazing people that backed me up at that school system.
