A very connected community with something for everyone to do! The sports involment is high, raising school spirit to the max! There are countless clubs and activities, and of you don't like those offered, you can create your own for like-minded people! The school is located near amazing restaurants where students can go for lunch. The teachers are good, but the options of academics are amazing! There's a class for every interest. The diversity is very good, hosting foreign exchange students from all over the world.

In my experience at Boise High, I have appreciated the kind and generous atmosphere where most teachers and students will cheer you up if you are having a bad day. For me, I love this school for its diversity, in a state that is 80
% white, and how our multiple classes of different languages (Espanol, Francais, German, Latin) all allow my peers and I to appreciate the bigger world. Furthermore, I have sincerely enjoyed my current time at Boise High, with all the sports, clubs, school culture, and great friends.
Thanks Boise High School!
Boise High is a diverse, academic and arts centered high school like non other in Idaho. Progressive, open-minded- yet rigorous with high expectations of students. The teachers and admin care! The kids help create a loving and all inclusive culture that makes for better learning.
