    This place has got to be now by the far the worst and scumiest high school in America. You people should be ashamed to rip that little girl's dreams out of her hands. You want to promote a so called good education system. So you're teaching a young lady that helping someone in time of need is wrong because she was late for a graduation practice that DOESN'T HELP. We have all graduated hs and know how beyond pointless the practice's are in the first place. I think your sorry pos's have better things to worry about. Mark my word you will regret this. And you will no longer be a four star rated school.

    Caring teachers kids that excel in extracurricular activities such as chorus and marching band (which by the way has won 6 of the last seven years state first place)and most sports.

    My child has attended Blue Ridge area schools since kindergarten and is a freshman this year at Blue Ridge High. There are many opportunities to be involved in many aspects of school life. The school has so many excellent extracurricular programs! The academic program is very impressive as well! BRHS gets the 'best all around' award. If there is a negative to be stated it would be that students should be allowed to have a little more fun and receive more encouragement/positive support from the administrative standpoint. That is the overwhelming complaint that I've heard most from students. However they may not completely understand the reasons behind decisions are made. I must admit that I've wondered about some of the issues and outcomes myself. Blue Ridge High overall is a GREAT school. The only high school in Greenville county for MY child!

    We moved to this area last year from the Chicago suburbs. We really weren't sure what to expect. My son's 9th grade experience has been wonderful. He is a straight A student in all Honors classes - he really likes his teachers. He is thriving! I really like the block schedules as well. Much better idea.
