Horrible. So many students threaten others. Teachers are rude, and have friends to support them. And kids bully each other. They are rude and disrespectful. I don't know how anyone likes this schools. Don't let the high SAT scores fool you. Avoid this place.
This school cares more about stats, test scores, and impressions. Control that, and you can discredit anyone's criticism and accuse them of being a grumbler or complainer who jumps to conclusions. They do not prepare most students for college like they claim. Only those students already at the top of their game and already possess college level skills will say differently, and so will their parents, because they get all the attention and advantages in both the classrooms and the school. There are a huge number of students with great potential at this high school that aren't learning or scoring quite as high as they are capable of if they had more devoted attention, but because they are performing average or good enough, they fall through the cracks. They are not taught the required college skills at all. Their grades only reflect that they haven't mastered self-learning and self-direction, not what they are capable of learning. In addition, there is no way to have complaints resolved. Anyone you have to report to a superior is above reproach. When you go to the very top, you are told that you have to deal directly with the one you are having a problem with even thought you tell them you already have. There is nothing else you can do because parents are always treated like hostiles, no matter what the disagreement is. Staff will quickly try to cover up what they did wrong, and amass support from other staff to discredit what a student reports or the parent. This kind of oversight prevents this high school from actually becoming what they purport they are because it keeps bad employees in place where they shouldn't be.
Batavia has the very best high school! As a high school teacher (from another district) I feel the administration and teachers at Batavia go above and beyond to make each student's experience the very best it can be. I LOVE the block scheduling. It allows students to actually learn and it allows students to really focus on four classes at a time. Our daughter is flourishing here. I am so glad we picked Batavia 10 years ago!
I'm currently a student at BHS and I feel that the curriculum itself is ok. The main thing I have problems with are the the school bathrooms. The bathrooms in the school are in total disrepair, but the janitors don't seem to try to even fix it. The only thing they try to fix is people writing on the bathroom walls and people peeing and pooping on the floor. Oh yeah. I forgot to mention that people do that in our school. The school just dumped a bunch of money towards improving the hallways of the school, but not trying to fix the bathrooms when they're needed to be fixed.
