  • BHS is an excellent school for both educational and character advancement. Faculty and staff are devoted to their students. Small enough for personal interaction throughout, but large enough for superb curriculum.

  • School is FANTASTIC. Consistently rated as the best academics in Arkansas, and consistently wins state and national sports competitions. 2009 state baseball champs, 2010 cheerleading national champs, and constant success in all other sports.
