What BHR has done for you

BHR has been able to mentally challenge me the way other schools I've attended haven't as well as provide me with some genuine friends and provide me with some great memories.

Why you came to BHR instead of your local high school

I went to my local high school for around 7 months after I first moved to Randolph and I felt that BHR would better be able to surround me with people who care about their education as much as I do and set me up for the future I want to have.

Best advice you ever received from a teacher/parent/family member/friend
