I have had great experiences with many of the staff at Bosse. They want the best for the students and some go above and beyond to help when you ask for it. The Administration conducts periodic surveys to capture our concerns and find ways to improve things at the school which is good.
My experience in Benjamin Bosse High School has been very bittersweet to me. It's very bittersweet because throughout my three years and going on four years, I have been through a lot. I have joined The color guard team for 2 years and just now started being in the Bosse theatre project. When I graduate in next 5 months, I wanna like back and say it was all worth it.
Despite it's reputation, Bosse High School is actually a pretty good school. The community there is very supportive and wants you to do your best.
I went to Bosse for all four years of high school. I enjoyed every minute of it. I'm going to miss all the great people I met.
Bosse High School was such an enriching school to attend due to the diversity of the student body, the personal connections with the faculty, and the fine arts opportunities offered.
I really like that Bosse is a very diverse school.I also like that teachers try hard to help students out if they need help.
I liked that there is always someone who can and will help you. I do think there should be more effort to help out those who do not think they can achieve what they want to do.
It has good staff, good principal. They all want every student to succeed. I haven't seen bullying, but there are fights. There aren't as many extracurricular activities or electives as other schools in Evansville.
Bosse has the potential of being a decent school but the inconsistency of teachers and with the EVSC's poor curriculum, most of my time here felt like a waste. Many of the teachers were either not encouraging or uninterested the subjects they were teaching. There are plenty of teachers who really love the subjects they teach, but due to the loose grading and assignments, a lot of time in class felt wasted on subjects that were sidetracked or over-focused. Plus a required study hall is miserable.
I had a very good time at Bosse High school. It was a breath of fresh air compared to the school I went to my freshman year. The teachers and staff are very motivating and try their best to help students succeed. Bosse has a very positive family atmosphere where everyone can get along. I find that amazing because not all high schools are like that.
The diversity, student size, and experience is the best part of Bosse High School. You gain lifelong friends and experiences in this school. The size of the school is nice because you feel like you see the same faces every day and know most of them. The academics, college readiness, and more are average. The food is poor as well as how some of the sports are run. There are groups in the school but you are not confined to just one. You can mix into all of the groups. Overall, I was satisfied with my attendance. I believe they could take more advantage of new education tactics like virtual learning to offer classes that they do not provide.
My experience so far has been great. I've met a lot of new people and experienced a lot of experiences. I like the teachers here at Bosse, and would like to continue to work with them. What I don't like is how old the school is.
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.
Bosse High had some of the best teachers I’ve met, and I couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunities they opened up for me. I feel that Bosse has academic excellence due to the teachers sitting down and forming personal goals with their students. For instance, my old Spanish teacher is super close to me, and she always asks that I come in from college and talk to the high school students about general things and my overall experience as a college freshman. While telling my experience, I made sure to note that in college a 75% is more than likely barely passing. I then elaborated on how this teacher helped me in preparing for college. She constantly held our class at an 80% expectation, so that we would pass comfortably. The work was hard of course, and many students hated her because of it, but no matter the day we were having, she always offered her support and help, we just had to have an approachable attitude.
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!
The honor classes are very good and provides many opportunities. The teachers are very helpful and open.
Teachers try to help you. Counselors listen if you have a problem. Not too many bullies. That could go down though. Very good classes. People of many races and economic situations.
