I cannot say enough wonderful things about this district! As an alumnus of JGHS, there is no other place I would want my children to attend school. BTS provides an excellent education taught by amazing educators, and offers extra-curriculars led by coaches and directors who genuinely care!

JGHS provided opportunities that allowed me to excel, as long as I worked for it. I knew from a young age that I wanted to serve my country and the amazing mentoring and guidance I received allowed me to progress. I have been blessed by so many things in my life and attending JGHS was one of them.

Dinauer Family

Over the past 12 years, my 4 children have been students within the BTS District. We are a "Schools of Choice" family, and wanted a school that offered academics, extra-curriculars, and leadership. It's more than a school: it's a community that develops responsible, kind, and resourceful adults .

Attending Career Center was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I was in the Emerging Technologies program and discovered my passion for advertising through competing in BPA events. Without that opportunity and support from faculty, I'm not sure where I would have ended up.
