I absolutely loved my experience at Bolton High School. If it wasn’t for Bolton I wouldn’t have come out of my shell. I am a new and improved person because of Bolton. The teachers are amazing. The building is gorgeous. The entire student body is a big family. You can’t ask for more in a high school. The only thing that needs to change is we need more students! I am a proud alum of Bolton Class of 2018 and recommend it to everyone! Geaux Bears! Win honor and Win fame!

The school I attend is unlike other high schools. The major qualities it possesses is that it is known for its diversity and openess to new people and ideas. The only thing that I would do is improve Bolton's ability to make a difference for upcoming freshman. As a part of Bolton High School's Student Council, I want to use my position as Parlimentarian to make a difference in new students lives. I want all students to feel encouraged and know that they have a voice in our school. It's important for students to not feel ignored by their peers. Making a positive difference is what I strive to do everday.
Although Bolton wasn't my first choice, by the first quarter of my ninth grade, I was grateful that I chose Bolton. Although other schools in Rapides Parish are good schools, Bolton is the best school because of the student body and the faculty and staff. The diverse student body and the considerate faculty and staff are unique because they become a family away from home. The atmosphere at Bolton is friendly and welcoming. It is a place where everyone will be accepted regardless of his or her differences. I am grateful for the rigors courses at Bolton because they have genuinely prepared me for college.
