I have only been attending Bolton High School for 2 years, but in these 2 years I have grown a lot in academic education. Since Bolton is a very small school and there are only 70 students in my grade I was able to connect with my teachers and receive help whenever I needed it. Another thing that is great about Bolton is that whenever you try out for a sport there are most likely not going to be any cuts so you'll make it! This keeps students self-esteem high and helps them stay fit. However, my school does not have enough school spirit, and I would like to see that grow. There are also a lot of cliques in Bolton, which prevent everyone from being friends and sometimes causes bullying. Overall, I am very grateful to have attended Bolton High and will miss it.

Bolton High School was a school that only cared about how much money a family had of a child who went to the school. Living in such a small town all my life and having to deal with the same people was not such a bad thing but, the school system made it very hard for everyone to succeed. Most teachers (besides the teachers in the English wing) at the high school normally would not be able to conform to teaching at a different school simply because of the social norms that are allowed there. This school is not somewhere to bring you children if you are not upper middle class.
Teachers are very helpful and go out of their way for students. Needs to be more diverse that should have more students from different regions going to the school. More open choice students . No not breakfast in the morning which is terrible. We, as students should be able to eat hot food in the morning that the school she provide.
