  • Great athletic program. Football made a run to state in 2001, 2002. BHS makes the playoffs in just about every sport offered!

  • This year my son attends BHS as a senior. Things have gone fairly well so far. Last year it sucked. The principal is not very attentive to serious situations. He is not a very good example setter. The good teachers are very far
