For the second year in a row, BVHS received the Governors Achievement Award.

This is the third time BV met the requirement of being in the top five percent of schools in Kansas scoring high in math and reading. BV scored in the 97 and 98 percentile in reading and math respectively.

“It is really a credit to our students and staff,” principal Scott Bacon said. “The teachers have a great passion for what they’re doing and students are doing a good job of applying things they learn in the classroom.”

Bacon said the goal is to reach and maintain a 100 percent proficiency in both reading and math.

“Students have told me they want this to be the best high school in the country,” Bacon said. “To do that we need to continue in the direction we are headed.”
