Boiling Springs High School is a very interesting school to say the least. We have a great staff and specific teachers are absolutely amazing. My pre-calculus honors teacher was one of the best teachers I have ever had. Unfortunately though we do lack school spirit. Our student body is focused on other things that are not as important as our eduction.
We also give a lot of lenience to students that do not neccessarily need it. Our school is all about oppurtunity and makes the resources available to those who want to achieve. Although my school is not the best school in the district, it definitely has many pros and cons. I would not want to go anywhere else because this is where I have grown up and I am proud to be a Bulldog!

Boiling Springs High School is an okay school overall. The administration is terrible and the student body consist of mean and judge mental people. Nevertheless, the academics at Boiling Springs High School is adequate. Some teachers are better than others. Just hope you get the good ones!
I moved back to Boiling Springs three years ago and started out in 8th grade. I've realized that the lack of diversity is due to there not being many in the area which makes the rating low along with the lack of resources provided by the school and counselors and the strict ideals of college readiness though not teaching the basic information needed when we, as students, go out into the world. There are some teachers, however, that do take it upon themselves to teach or give life advice helpful for the future. Personally, I bring my lunch to school, but moving to the main campus my sophomore year not only was it new both in a literal sense and never being there before, they built in a cafe shop with great food, especially the lemon pound cake and fudge brownies. Aside from the food and academic requirements, their goal is engagement with the school by having a good number of pep rallies, a school store, themes for Friday Night Lights and overall involvement during your time there.
