Blackhawk School District Reviews

From my experience attending Blackhawk High School, there were plenty of good times and bad. One of those good times being how well rounded of individuals we had growing up together. We all considered each other to be family, and that's something I can forever cherish leaving that school. With good, there always has a bad. One being the school board, throughout my senior year I was faced with obstacles that the administration threw at us, and we all had to go through them together. With that all being said, I will always remember Blackhawk High School in a positive and cherrishable way.

They have excellent teachers who are good at engaging students on the lesson at hand. The cafeteria has decent food if your child doesn't like packing. Blackhawk has a lot of school spirit that encourages the athletes' performance. High school students are offered AP courses and college classes with CCBC while in high school. There is always more classes being offered in scheduling if there wasn't enough classes already. Blackhawk is overall a very safe school to learn at.
Had some amazing teachers in nearly every department (except our science department) but some things felt unorganized or not very thought through (such as some of our preparing for college assemblies which did little to actually help or answer questions). Not very great scheduling or guidance office assistance. Good focus on safety and school spirit. Many clubs are offered but there are not many "club days" throughout the year so the actual involvement and things to learn is fairly limited.
