    I have a soon to be Senior at BGHS. Academically this school is superior. This school especially for it's small size has so much to offer our children - from College Prep courses to Special Needs classes and help. It is top notch. The class sizes have seemed to grow lately and could be smaller. The Guidance staff has been very informative to help with planning for college and a pleasure to work with. Teachers for the most part are willing to spend extra time outside of their regular schedule to help with extra needs. The music/choral program lead by Scott Bradford is excellent. Sports seems to be the weakest area with plenty of room for improvement however most students are able to participate which is nice.
