Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake Central School District Reviews
My kids have all had a fairly positive experience at BHBL. It is a small, safe environment and the music and fine arts programs are outstanding. The district has a strong senior administrative team and the bullying around here typically occurs over social media, not in the schools. The special education program is noteworthy as is the athletics program which shows the district is committed to educating and investing in all children. I would absolutely ease up in the earlier grades, however, and would love to see the district adopt a no homework policy for the earlier grades.
The Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake School District has been nothing by helpful to me over the past 12 years. There is a variety of courses and elective that can be taken which keep students involved and interested. Teachers and administrators are constantly working to improve the lives of students, whether in the form of improving education, providing opportunities, or garnering social interactions through our clubs and sports. BHBL hires professionals to protect the school in the event that danger may arise, in addition to working closely with the local police department. Parents are also very relevant, as the schools makes sure that their voices are heard.
The overall experience has been amazing. Teachers, counselors, and administration all nurture the students in their care and make sure they get the most of their high school experience. The students are kind, and there is an environment of compassion and cooperation all around the school.
