BCHS Principal's Communication- November 18, 2022- "A" BCHS Celebration

November 18, 2022

BCHS Families,

I am so proud to send this email to our BCHS community because the news is outstanding!  BCHS has been named an “A” school by the Arizona Department of Education for the second time!  Our first “A” was in 2019, and we have not received another letter grade until now due to the pandemic.  We are thrilled that we continue to shine, especially with the new state assessment change to the ACT and ACT ASPIRE tests.   Based on the letter grade points from the state, BCHS is ranked in the top 11% of Arizona high schools.

An A-rating means that BCHS has achieved distinguished performance on the statewide assessments, has high 4 year graduation rates, has students are on track to proficiency, and has overall performance is significantly higher than state average.  We are so incredibly proud of our students, our staff, and our community for supporting the success of our students. While we continuously focus on supporting and growing our learners, it is a wonderful feeling to pause for a moment and to see our achievement as a school.  Thank you so much for your support of BCHS and congratulations! 

I wish you a wonderful week off to celebrate gratitude and Thanksgiving with family and friends.  We are grateful for our community, our families, our staff, and our incredible students!  Go Jags!  

Warm regards,

Brittany Sutton, Principal
