How you have commuted to school throughout the years?

I took the train and it was a 30-minute commute door-to-door. Or, I drove and it was 15 minutes.

What BC High means to you:

Most of my character-building and finding who I want to be took place between the halls of McElroy and Walsh. BC High means the world to me, and I am grateful I was able to spend the past six years in such a loving environment.

What teachers or guidance counselors say about you:

John was consistently open to feedback, was respectful, and took challenges in stride. This gave him an intellectual resiliency and maturity that supports deep, authentic lifelong learning.

— Melissa Ewing, French IV teacher
