Binghamton is a great school district. I have attended school here since kindergarten. The teachers really care about you and your education. I participate in sports and have been fortunate to have many different and qualified coaches. I love the diverse population and classes BHS offers me. I couldn’t be more proud to be a Binghamton Patriot!

A Binghamton education is what one makes of it. The school offers many IB courses that allow for great college readiness. However, most students do not capitalize on these opportunities. The school is not amazing, but certainly does not deserve its poor reputation.
i have recently visited this college and I fell in love at first sight, This is my top school that i want to attend. Everyone was so nice there, the dorms were clean and the classrooms were a great size. I was very reserved when thinking about attending colleges until I visited Birmingham and now I cant wait to see if the love me as much as i love them. I never realized how important school choices were until i started visiting schools I have seen a lot of different environments and when you are going from school to school you will know when you have reached "the one" and for me me Birmingham is the one.
