What BHR has done for you

Blue Hills has taught me about different career options that I would have never thought about.

Why you came to BHR instead of your local high school

I came to Blue Hills because I knew I wanted to work with children and that Blue Hills offered an Early Childhood and Care program.

A quotation that inspires you, or that you live by

“Look for something positive in each day, even if some days you have to look a little harder.”

If you are a hands-on learner, Blue Hills is a place for you!

Teacher or Faculty member at BHR who has helped or inspired you the most

Mr. Morris, because he recognized my hard work as a freshman and recommended me to honors for sophomore year. It was my first honors class ever!

Who is your hero?  

My Dad, because he is the most hardworking and humble person I know. He is always putting others before himself and helping those in need.

Most memorable moment at BHR

Getting into Early Education and Care, the technical program I wanted.
