I am currently attending this high school and I find it to be lacking in a few areas. The school is overcrowded with over 2,000 children. This leads to not much organization. Also, it's hard for any student or teacher to be well-known for there is an excessive amount... For academics, the Honors and AP courses are pretty good. We get an adequate amount of homework and learn from a more rigorous course, plus there is less bullying. The teachers I've had in advanced classes teach quite well. However, I have taken some non-advanced classes, and I cannot say the same thing. Plus, those classes are were majority of the students fall into, which means that our school is below average in learning. Because there are too many people, we have multiple faculty members assigned to specific students by last name. I don't like this. Most of the time, we cannot even speak to our assigned one and have to end up talking to another because they're not always there, we don't get to know our own member. Perhaps most of these problems come from having a small, poor school district. I wish there wasn't a character limit so that I could say more.

I'm a student right now and it's a great school. People get along really well and all of the teachers are always willing to help. I've been in many programs and all of them have been a success. We aren't great in sports but we still support each other no matter who you are. It's so great that there's so many people and that absolutely anyone can find a friend there.

Battle Ground is sadly lacking in encouragement for higher education. Our family is very education minded but my daughters instructors at this high school do not seem to care if she has higher education. I have been very disappointed in the last 3 years.

the school is a little over crowded because of battle ground's recent popularity. the school is in a tight place right now because of the lack of funding. but the teachers are keeping it together and the students just have to be responsible. I love battle ground. my student has close friends and is in a sport. the teachers are ready and willing to combine with parents to find any way for student success. it's just an overall good place.

This school is an average school that has a number of great teachers and a number of mediocre teachers. A good education can be provided with close scrutiny of teachers and parent involvement.

The facilities are not fancy but functional. (No individual lockers for the kids, which stinks.) Teachers are solid.

Students are pretty divided at Battle Ground. Basically they either side radical right wing or radical left wing, and they don't get along. The education is ok, but the social environment is terrible.

One of the worst schools in the district I believe. Teacher provide no help in classes directly with students, and after seeing this my student was transfered to Summit View High School. After the Transfer we saw termindious inprovements!

I graduated from this school in 1998. I went To Columbia River my Freshman year and then transferred to Battle Ground for the rest of my three years. It is an outstanding school, and the people are great and almost everybody gets along. I would recommend this school to anyone. Also they have alot of good programs like the Skills Center which is a great program to get out and see what life is really like. The teachers are also great. Thanks to them I would have probably never graduated.

I presently go to this school (2004-05) and am a senior this year. This is my first and only high school, and I think it is awesome. The People are very nice at this school including faculty and students. It is a very large school, and also offers many classes that you can't take at smaller schools. I don't think our sports teams are very good, but we still have school spirit.

I'm not a parent, but a student (freshman) in 2003-2004, and I'd just like to say that although this school is a little crowded, it is the best school that I've attended, and I have gone to six other schools. If you are considering having your child go to this school, I would recommend it, and believe me, hearing approval for a school from a student's lips is a rare thing.

I had a son graduate from this school in 2002 and will be having a daughter in 2004, this school has done an outstanding job with their students.
