Blue Mountain school district adequately prepares students for higher learning. It is a safe environment and the teachers care greatly about their students. The faculty is passionate about what they do and it shows through their work, as well as through the students work. The school is safe, clean, and well kept and the custodial staff is willing to make any and all possible changes to improve the quality of every student's experiences. It is with great pride that I can truly say I am a Blue Mountain eagle!

I enjoyed my time at Blue Mountain High School up until the Covid 19 pandemic hit and we had to go online. The initial transition to online learning was a complete waste of time as no one was set up to teach or learn this way. However, changes were made over the summer and it while it was better than the spring session I personally was having problems learning this way. Now that we were able to go back to in school learning things are going back to normal.
Blue Mountain High School is an excellent High School. The faculty and staff at BM is superior to most and are constantly enriching the education of the students. Our athletic programs are engaging and competitive, consistently possessing successful seasons. If athletics are not your thing, Blue Mountain has a vast selection of clubs and activites which gurantees any student a way to enjoy his or her free time. Students of this establishment should expect to feel well prepared for college as many courses hold this preparation in high regard. The facilities on campus remain clean and well kept.
