It is a great school and teachers are people who are passionate about their job. They are caring and will help you in many ways. My learning has increased by a lot ever since I moved to the Blue Springs School District. When I first came here, back in 2016, I barely knew any English at all. I came to Blue Springs and I could say I learned about 90% of the English I know right now. Every day, my learning increases in any of my classes!

I had a wonderful experience within Blue Springs overall! I was involved with Deca, FBLA, I played basketball and baseball. I stayed very busy and maintained a 4.0 GPA throughout high school. I would like to see some teachers care a little more about certain topics within school. It seemed they could care less on some.
The elementary schools made me advanced and ready for middle school. There were many advanced class opportunities, which i took! I am enrolled in 12 credit hours this semester as a senior in high school, and i am so thankful for the experience. The only downside to my current high school, Blue Springs South, is the politics. Sports are all based on politics, and the school senate is completely corrupt. They also force you to know what you want to do with your life at a very young age, causing me to have panic attacks even thinking about it.
