"BSG has left me with memories that would make me smile unconsciously when I think about them in the future.
The best part about it is simply the atmosphere and interactions between everyone in the school community. Teachers were not just teachers; they genuinely cared about what’s going on in my life, and were people that I could enjoy a good laugh with whilst learning so much more than just textbook content from them. The students are some of the friendliest people you will find. Our small year group is what made it so welcoming! Everyone knew everyone; hence the friendships that I’ve built here are definitely those that I would keep with me for the rest of my life.
Often, people ask me if I go to a ‘good’ high school, and this always makes me wonder what exactly makes a high school ‘good’. Obviously, good academics, reputation or strong sports teams are the typical things that constitute a stereotypical good school, and I’m sure my school meets those.
However, I would say that what made BSG special for me was it made me happy; it was a place that I would willingly go to early in the morning, and leave excited as I have had another happy day filled with stimulating learning experiences and fun times with friends. And after all, aren’t those the most important things for a high school students when facing stressful exams and worries about the future?"
