So far we have been very pleased with the elementary schools in Bozeman. And this year with a high school freshman and an exchange student attending Bozeman high school we have been amazed with the vibe, the spirit, the diversity of programs and ideas, and the intellectual challenges available there.
So it was not particularly surprising the other day when it came out that US News and World Report rated BHS the best high school in Montana.
On the state level, the report ranked Bozeman High School as No. 1.
"I think it's actually pretty cool," said Bozeman High freshman Levi Merwin.
The report named Bozeman in the top 1,000 high schools across the U.S. at No. 731 -- and first overall in Montana. Students at Bozeman High said they think that's due, in part, to the close relationship between the students and community.
"They try to help out and be nice to everyone that they meet and try to help in the community," said Bozeman High freshman Sam Keshinshian.
Others said it came down to the great teaching staff.
"We have really good teachers, so we do learn a lot and we are really, a lot of us are really smart," said Bozeman High freshman Emily Tonkinson.
