    As a recent graduate of this school I have seen what really goes on at this school. The one point that I cannot stress enough is that if a student wants a good education they can get it at BCHS if they are willing to work for it. The problem is that many students just want to take the easy road and don't seem to care or think about their future so of course the atmosphere won't be as great in the basic diploma classes but all schools are that way. Sure there are a few bad teachers but there are also really good teachers who very successfully prepared me for college. Since the MacBook distribution (yes every student gets a laptop here) the behavioral referrals have almost ceased to exist and never in my four years did I see real bullying (unlike Perdido Middle) or cyberbullying at this school. Yes the parent involvement could be better in some programs and more recognition should be given to non athletic programs but no school is perfect. Bottom line if your student wants to succeed then they can very well do so at BCHS. (Hey our Val and sal last year went to Wharton and Yale.) Just look at the facts.

    As a grandparent I believe this school and schools across the nation has plenty room for improvement. I believe this school is like other schools across the nation where teachers are losing control in classrooms. I agree with the parent who posted on this website on March 29 2010. All you have to do is turn on your local news and you will see some kind of violence or disruption happening at one of our local schools or schools across the nation. It all started when we allowed prayer the bible and paddling to not be allowed in schools. I have a granddaughter attending this school.

    We have one child attending BCHS and the teachers have no control in the classrooms it is like being in a zoo. So the kids that are there that want to learn can't. My child is not a custome to being in such and enviroment he went to perdido middle school before coming here and the kids where taught respect. My child takes the hardest classes this school has to offer and complains everyday about the disruption and that the teachers have no control. The county needs to spend money on getting teachers that can contro thier classrooms.

    Attending this school has been a joy to me. Between the amazing teachers outstanding administration supportive faculty and wonderful students I have had nothing but a good experience here at B.C.H.S. If anyone is looking to move to Baldwin County I would encourage coming to Bay Minette.

    The quality of academics here compared to other schools is average. Great athletic programs. Never enough parent involvement.

    I attended Baldwin County High School and I consider this school a great environment for the students to learn in. I enjoyed my experience there and wouldn't change very much about it. The teachers ther are very sweet and are more than willing to help your child get started on a great future. The students get along well with each other and are more than willing to help each other when it comes to learning.I enjoyed my experience there and hope to one day enjoy the environment when my child becomes a high school student.

    We have one student at this school. Three others have graduated form BCHS. We have been in contact with menbers of the staff and teachers for the 10 years. Durning this time we have recieved nothing but outstanding responces from anyone connected with BCHS.

    I attend this school and this is my second year. It doesn't have the most expensive extra-curricular activities but we amke everything better even though it may not look great to someone else. All the kids here have a place and no one is left out of a group. It's a small town so the moment someone new steps into a room everyone wants to know who they are. No one is alone here.
