Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake Central School District Reviews

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 older parts of the building could use some updating, but the teachers are fantastic. I have made so many connections with them, across all subjects. They genuinely want you to succeed in and out of the class room and they really care about the students. The food is terrible though. The athletic department is top notch, and the clubs are numerous. There is everything from sports clubs to science, art and Pride clubs. I have participated in Debate club, pride club and international club. Through the school I have traveled to Germany twice. Both times were incredible and your teachers really help make sure you don’t get to far behind. It was the best experience of my life.
Over the years I have gained an appreciation for all basic subject matters (Science, Math, English, History). This is due to the great education I received from Burnt Hills High school. The clubs and the sports teams are very good, one of the best in the area. Our music program is phenomenal, but perhaps the best extracurricular activity that the high school has to offer is it's outstanding Science Research program. We form independent research projects, learn how to publicly speak, reach out to mentors, and compete in regional, and national science competitions.
