Benjamin Bosse High School Reviews

107 reviews

Bosse High school is a great school to attend. Along with being the only IB school in the EVSC school district, Bosse is a mixing pot for students of all kinds of race, ethnicity, economic and cultural backgrounds. The alumni are loyal and supportive and the sports are entertaining to watch. Most teachers are helpful and can listen and relate to any student's problems that they are having inside or outside of the classroom. Bullying and fights are not common; most of the students get along and even show love and support to special ed students. There is a library, but sadly no librarian to facilitate it which means that it can prove difficult to print off papers or check out books. The food at this high school is like every other school's in the fact that it is not very good, hot, or fresh. It is rationed out to students in C lunch as they often run out sides or entrees. Despite these negative factors, Benjamin Bosse High School is still one of the best.

Benjamin Bosse high school was a huge part of my life. As a 2018 Bosse Alumni I am proud to say that I stayed the whole four years. I feel like I've learned so much both academically and communicably. I met so many awesome friends, teachers, and staff and I am so very thankful for them. There's so many different activities you can be involved in. I participated in orchestra, spell bowl, choir, and drama. Mrs. Huff, my former principle, randomly selected me to participate in camp RYLA which stands for Rotary Youth Leadership Awards. I stayed at camp RYLA for a weekend at Bradford Woods. I met a lot of different friends from all over the globe. We still stay in touch and it was a pleasure to meet them. In addition, I was selected to win the Arian Award for being an outstanding student while being involved in the orchestra all four years of my high school career. So with that being said, I give Benjamin Bosse high school a five star rating.
My school has great teachers, but sometimes it's hard to learn because of the students. One thing I would like to change is dress code. We should be able to express ourselves!
