  • I understand the teachers trying to protect Mr Hill but I like the other parent believe that he is in over his head. I tried to talk with him on more than one occasion and he doesn't seem to hear you. He is very defensive and almost insulting in the way that he speaks to you, as if you aren't on his level. I also agree that he is scared of the students. Mr Register on the other hand is GREAT ! ! Maybe he should be the principal?

  • I attened BCHS under two principals and so far they both seemed scared of the stundents. I understand being flexible and willing to listen. BUt there wasn't strong rules that everyone followed. By this I mean the teachers and everyone. I don't believe the school will ever get any better due to the enivornment that is around it.

  • Ms. Payne is a great new addition to the administration. The way that she motivates my kids to learn and be all around better students and people is what i want in a leader!! The school has shown improvement and i feel the education is improveing. I just wish that we could attract better teachers.

  • BCHS is a progressive school with an incredible group of students and teachers. Our administrators are among the most dedicated that I have ever seen. They are caring, diligent, and professional at every level. Mr. Hill has done an incredible job of trying to lead us in a forward motion. However, one can not lead those who refuse to follow. Overall, I think we have on of the best schools in North east Florida.

  • This school is the best! It is superior to many private schools in Jacksonville and the new principal is doing an excellent job! Mr. Hill is professional, extremely knowledgeable and remains very approachable! All the characteristics needed to govern & lead well!

  • I am very disappointed in the way this school is being run right now. We need a (...) that has some type of leadership skills. Right now my child has two classes that have no heat and I had to be the one to call maintenance and report it. WHERE IS THE LEADERSHIP AND WHY ARE THEY NOT BEING HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR LACK OF PROFESSIONALISM. THEY WANT TO DICTATE HOW MANY DAYS A PARENT CAN KEEP THE CHILDREN OUT OF SCHOOL BUT THEY WANT TAKE THE TIME TO MAKE SURE THAT OUR CHILDREN ARE NOT GOING TO BECOME ILL BECAUSE THEY ARE IN A CLASS THAT IS 30 DEGREES. THIS IS RIDICULOUS!

  • This school was wonderful under last years leaderhsip but the new principal seems to have his hands full and was not fully ready for the task he took on. I have been very disappointed with the new administration. Mr Hill is a nice guy but I think he is in over his head ! ! ! ! ! ! !
