This school is horrible, it doesn’t prepare us for collage in any way. We don’t use a normal grading scale and instead use a 4 point scale in where homework does not count and only or test grades determine out grade. No helpful classes out offered at this school with the exception of 2-3 classes that could teach me some real useful information. The school is over crowed and hallways are always packed basically body to body.
I know students there who have witnessed bullying on a regular basis, but teachers largely ignore it and administration acts like it doesn't happen. Worse yet, I know instructors who used to be there who have left because of how bad the administration has become. A few years ago they said it was one of the happiest places in town to work. In the decade since, administrators have destroyed that. I am so glad I don't have any kids of student age who would have to go there now; it was a great school when I attended in the early 80's.
On a scale on one to ten, this school is a solid 2.
Our son has high-functioning Asperger's with an average to above average IQ. School has always been a struggle due to his learning differences, however, he enrolled an intensive 6-week summer World History class, designed to satisfy his Freshman Social Studies credit . We were concerned, how would he would adapt to a newer, larger group of peers and school? Would the teachers respect his learning style? Would they view us as "helicopter(s) parents" when/if we had to communicate any issues? Would both his teachers and peers understand his lack of social skills? Realize that he would rather appear to "keep up" than to call attention to himself and ask questions? We found the staff to be compassionate, caring and respectful, and we could not have asked for a better experience for our son. He also attended summer band camp, the group of 180+ kids and their director welcomed him as "family" right away. They (BBCHS staff and students) GET it, and they CELEBRATE what makes our child unique, and in turn give back to our son what he needs most: the understanding and encouragement to strive to be successful, and the HOPE, as said to us recently: "mom, dad, I'll finally fit in!"
