On March 13th, the Math Department at BCHS celebrated n March 13th, the Math Department at BCHS celebrated Pi Day. Pi Day celebrates the ratio of the circumference of a circle to it's diameter. Pi is an irrational number, meaning that the digits never repeat themselves and it never terminates. The first million digits of Pi can be found here. Pi is often shortened to 3.14. This year was special because the date 3/14/15 descibed the first 5 digits of Pi (3.1415) and at exactly 9.26:53 AM Pi was described to 10 digits (3.141592653). Thank you to the teachers and students in the Math Department for this great learning experience. The department is now looking forward to Square Root Day on 4/4/16.
Congratulations to BCHS student Gabrielle who correctly spelled "chintzy" to win this year's Bath County Public Schools Spelling Bee.​

Bath County High School Named State Finalist in the $2 million Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Contest
School will receive two Samsung Galaxy® Tabs and the opportunity to win additional prizes
Bath County High School announced that it has become a Virginia state finalist in the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow contest, a nationwide competition to increase interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) by challenging teachers and students to take topics out of traditional classroom settings and into local communities. In addition to being awarded two Galaxy® Tabs, one teacher received a professional development course from PBS TeacherLine.
Bath County High School has moved onto this round of the competition for their interest in using STEM to address difficulties in winter weather prediction in a rural, mountainous county. Bath County High School is one of four other schools in Virginia to become a state finalist in the Solve for Tomorrow contest. During the next phase of the competition, a Mertz Career and Technical Center at Bath County High School teacher will create a lesson plan to address the issue in an educational setting. 51 state winners will be announced in early December.
This is Bath County High School’s first time as a state finalist in the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow contest. To learn more about the competition and past winners, please visit
