    Overall Experience: Overall, I am glad I attended Billings Senior High over the other high schools in Billings, MT. I made great friends that I will have for life and I feel confident that I received a strong education.

    Food: The school food does not cost very much but it is hardly worth what you pay. There is a sandwich bar, salad bar, hamburger station, plus whatever special they have that day. If you want a cheap meal then eat in the cafeteria. However, you get a decent amount of time and fast food places are very close to the school if students wish to leave for lunch.

    Administration & Policies: The school administration is very strict about certain things such as drug use and not attending school, but they are not as strict about dress code.

    Sports & Fitness: We have pretty successful sports teams at senior high. Most sports are challenging and produce some incredible athletes. The volleyball program is extremely successfully with three state championships in a row this year.

    Teachers: There are plenty of top notch teachers who are willing to go above and beyond for their students, but there are those who should not be teaching. Some teachers do not grade consistently or teach effectively.
