Open Quote My child was bullied by Christian students for not being Christian and for having Asperger's (autism). The staff did nothing to help my child except blame him for not being tough enough to fight back. In this school, if you're not an athletic Christian with money, you don't matter. Close Quote

Open Quote BHS is a great school with great versatility throughout. Overall, this school is top notch, from academics to the music program, to even athletics. BHS is one never to disappoint, as it is constantly in the national spot-light for its fantastic teams and programs. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
