Bartow Senior High School Reviews

As someone who has attended Bartow High School for all four years of high school, I have enjoyed my time there mostly because of the variety of extracurriculars and clubs there are available to students. Because of the wide range of clubs, any student can find something they are interested in, and by extent make friends through these clubs, which can often be difficult in high school. The administration is friendly, though the enforcing of the rules isn't the highest on their list of priorities. The facilities are ok, but because parts of the school are considered historic they cannot be updated (which is reasonable, as the historic buildings are definitely important, though they need to be kept up with and cared for properly), and the new buildings are currently under construction so incoming students next year will be able to enjoy being the first students in these new classrooms.

I attended Bartow High School as an International Baccalaureate student. With confidence, I can say that the curriculum has adequately prepared me for college. The teachers genuinely care about the students and create an environment which fosters deep conversation while forming unique bonds as well. The faculty, guidance counselors in particular, went above and beyond when it came time for seniors to apply for college. Of course students may complain about repetitive food choices or not enjoying school sponsored events, however, this school has everything that truly matters.
Bartow high school is a phenominal school to be inviolved in. The school is made up of two other schools as well, IB and Summerlin Militray Academy. This school truly represents diversity and wellness of the students. The teachers truly work hard to ensure the students success through their high school career. Students there are taught to reach their goal no matter the circumstances. As a senior at Bartow Highschool, I have only seen the best this school has offered me. From the fantasic extracuriccular activies to supporting the community, Bartow High school is the place to be!
