Student Voices: What would you change about BPHS?

Waverly Shiff, Staff Writer

If you had a magic wand and could change anything about BPHS, what would it be and why?

I asked quite a few of my friends this question, which got them thinking hard about what they would actually change about their own high school, if they could.

One of my friends Brianna Gower told me plain and simple that SOMETHING with the stairs needs to be changed. She and a lot of other people just don’t like walking up all those stairs every single day because there are so many flights.

Another thing she wishes she could change is how early we start school in the morning, and of course she wants school to start way later than it actually does.


Some proposed changes were more general in nature like gym class and how my friend Maddie Schiedler doesn’t like how we have to sign in and out after using the restroom.

Another friend of mine Joey Turner talked about gym and how he wants gym to just not exist basically in general.

“You shouldn’t have to swim and you should be able to take the classes you signed up for,” Turner said.

On the other hand, a close friend of mine named Tatyana Malovich thinks people at BPHS including teachers, etc., should talk about semi-tougher topics, as she said, “It’s better to talk about things than just letting it go,” which is very agreeable.

Also, she said dress code should be brought up because as she put it, “It’s always about what the girls wear, never the guys.”

Although some of my friends’ answers aren’t what people usually think of when asked if you could change anything about BPHS, this is even better because it’s deeper than what most people would answer, and I love it.
