grades, cumulative GPA, courses
taken, awards, and SAT / ACT
scores

beginning of senior year, so the
grades that you make freshman

see. They do not see senior year

US accept both

different, so depending on

other

Our Advice…
“Everything Counts”
• Everything that you do
during your high school
years will affect you. You
may not realize it right
now, but the graduation
process starts the moment
you walk into BHS for the
very first time.
“Make the right choices”
• Your high school
experience will be much
more enjoyable if you
stay out of trouble, both in
school and out of school.
Don’t do things that you
wouldn’t want your
friends and teachers to
know about.
“Take school seriously”
• Being a student is your
job. You are preparing
yourself for college and
eventually for a career.
You will benefit later on in
life by applying yourself to
your schoolwork now.
“Take interesting classes”
• Don’t take a class just
because your friends are
taking it. Take classes that
apply to your goals in life.
You will most likely have
more fun in these classes,
learn more, and meet
new friends that share
your interests.
“Ace standardized tests”
• It is important that you
perform well on
standardized tests in order
to be accepted into a
good college. Start
studying now and take
classes that will prepare
you to do your best on
these tests.
“Manage your time”
• You have the ability to
effectively manage your
time and stay on top.
Good study habits and
time management will
allow you to excel in high
school and still have fun
with your friends.
“Get involved”
• Participating in extra
curricular activities will
allow you to meet new
friends and contribute to
the community. Also,
extra curricular activities
look great on your
college transcript.
“Show school spirit”
• Sporting events are a
great way to spend time
with your friends, enjoy
high school, and show
school spirit. Follow the
seniors and cheer loudly!
You’ll be a senior soon,
leading the cheers and
showing the freshmen
how to do it!
“Show respect”
• Respect your teachers,
respect your peers, and
respect yourself.
Remember the golden
rule: treat others how you
would like to be treated!
“Be yourself and have fun”
• Don’t get caught up in
the social pressures of
high school. Don’t try to
be something that you
aren’t, just be yourself
and have fun.
