From the principal: "The Class of 2013 will always hold a special place in my heart. They welcomed me with open arms as their principal just three short years ago. During our brief time together, Bluffton High School has experienced a dramatic improvement in student achievement. We've been named to the Washington Post's 'America's Most Challenging High Schools' list three times, earned Palmetto Gold honors, received 'excellent' absolute and growth ratings on the S.C. school report card, been awarded SAT and ACT Magna Cum Laude Awards for Outstanding Performance and Rapid Improvement from the S.C. Department of Education, and doubled student participation in student activities. The Class of 2013 has raised the bar for those that follow, and I am so proud of their accomplishments and achievements. They have made a positive difference at BLHS!" -- Mark Dievendorf
