On Sports & Fitness: There is a variety of sports offered at Batavia High School. Fitness and health are highly encouraged. High performance standards are expected and athletes are expected to always give a full effort.

On Health & Safety: I've always felt safe at school. I have not had to see the nurse at all during my four years, so I can not report on that.

On Academics: We are on a block schedule. There are pros and cons to this. One pro, I was able to get in 5 years of Spanish and 5 years of Math. There are not enough English options in the curriculum. One con, there is a lot of wasted time, its hard for all of the teachers to keep the attention of the students for 90 minutes each day. There is a wide variety of class offerings. The min requirements to graduate are pretty low. Kids who want to take mostly blow off classes certain can, but for the most part it is a competitive school with many, many kids taking mostly honors or AP courses.

On Sports & Fitness: Our 2013 Football team won the state championship this year. There was an incredible amount of community support, which was exciting. We are a one highschool town, which lends to great support! Other sports are not as well attended, but there is great student support. We have a great band, which performs at all football games and some basketball games. Our facilities are good. We have a new field house, which has been great for all sports. Our outdoor facilities (baseball, softball, soccer etc. could use attention. There is a plan for a turf field and new baseball/softball fields, but there is currently no budget for the improvement plan.

On Resources & Facilities: The new fine arts center and field house are fantastic! The sports fields could use some attention. I think there is a plan, but problems with budget to get this done. Classrooms are fine, although extremely HOT all winter long.
