Bosse was an awesome school. The teachers always seemed to generally care about the students i their class. While it was still high school, waking up early in the morning to go there wasn’t always bad. The staff did their best to not make it feel like we were in jail, for lack of better words. They were strict, but also loving as well. We had a program that allowed students from other countries to attend our school and that was pretty awesome. They were always welcomed with open arms! Sports were also big thing there, just like any other high school. But I will say, students always supported their friends & teammates. Overall, I’m proud to call myself a Bosse bulldog alumni. Awesome school.

I started going to Bosse my sophomore year, and it was great. It's very easy to make friends there and the family atmosphere is great! My freshmen year I had attended one of the other evsc schools, and my experience was terrible, but going to Bosse turned it all around. I'm honestly glad to be graduating as a bulldog!
While being a student at Bosse, I have seen plenty of changes. I would like to commend our new principal, Mr. Huff, on his ability to change a school extremely quick. We have less drama and fights than ever before, and much more structure than anything else. However, it would be nice to have a little more freedom as we transition into becoming adults rather than be too restrictive. The best thing we have at Bosse is our IB program. I highly recommend students taking some IB courses, not full IB. Full IB is too stressful if you are an athlete or involved in any other extracurricular activities including having a job. We offer a class called "Theory of Knowledge" here, and it is by far the best class I have ever taken. Yes, I currently have senioritis, but I would never miss my Theory of Knowledge class. It keeps me intrigued and invested in real world issues while allowing me to see different perspectives from the world as well as my peers.
