Bolton is a great place for High School students and has a competitive academic environment. The school has definitely made improvements over the years and has a strong sense on school spirit. They offer a variety of college readiness courses including AP and Dual-enrollment opportunities. There is a healthy variety of sports and other extra curricular activities for students to be involved in. Parent and Alumni involvement is also one of the many great things Bolton High School is known for!

The things that I like about my school is that their are a lot of teachers that truly care to see you achieve something great and want to see every student they have graduate and have a better life.Also all the Administrators show how much they care for the school and the students and teachers by always asking our opinions on how well fell that we can make the school better. The musical and art programs are amazing we have some of the best artists in cenla that go to Bolton and we have a lot of students with musical gifts such as singing or playing a instrument. Also we have a great Theater program that is always planing a new show to do and is open to all students. When it comes to sports we are not the best school but we do have a lot of talent in all areas like football, wrestling , soccer, and track. But in over Bolton is a good school to attend if you want a good education and a great high school experience.
I loved attending Bolton (2015-2016). The community of Bolton promotes an encouraging environment that its easy to make friends. Students do form their own friend groups here and there, but they interact any social group or class interact well with their peers. The school's current administration encourages and rewards high achieving students and is good at displine. Things that need to improve are the cleanliness of the building (their is dust everywhere) and more AP classes.
