Welcome to BHS

Welcome to Ballinger High School and the 2019-20 school year!  Here at BHS we want to challenge our students to have a growth mindset, be lifelong learners, and be responsible and productive members of society.  This initiative is a set of standards that we call “The Bearcat Way.”  Through “The Bearcat Way” we teach and instill the following characteristics in our students:

  1.     College and Workforce Readiness
  2.     Citizenship
  3.     Leadership and Problem Solving
  4.     Communication Skills


As our students walk through the door each day, we want them to feel that they are a part of a learning environment in which they feel safe to take risks, be challenged in their learning, celebrate achievements, and even find growth in their shortcomings. Each child will be seen as an individual and set goals  and be challenged based on their unique academic and social/emotional needs.  


We want to partner with you, parents and community, on this journey.  It will not always be easy, there will be challenges, failures, and successes along the way.  We must work together as a family keeping the mindset of always doing what’s best for each student in the forefront and communicating our needs, questions, concerns, and support along the way.


I am excited about the great things that our Bearcats will do this school year! Please feel free to reach out to me at any time.
