      Four comments about Birmingham Community Charter High

      I have a question. If you had to choose between BCCHS and Valley Alternative Magnet what would you choose?

      BHS was better than BCCHS
      for focus on ALL students
      and because it did not
      fire good teachers

      According to me, BCCHS (Birmingham Community Charter High School) is one of the very many-becalmed charter school in Los Angeles Unified.

      And I'm very thankful to be a student there.

      BHS is one of the best public schools.
