Bondurant-Farrar High School has provided myself with numerous opportunities such as participating in basketball, track & field, chorus, becoming a mentor to elementary students and National Honor Society. I was also appointed by the school district to National Youth Leadership Council. I have excelled in academics and social skills while attending Bondurant-Farrar High School. If I were to recommend any changes it would be they offer wider range of classes with the local community college for prep courses.
Thank you for your consideration

They are more than willing to help a student who may be struggling, and they make learning fun. The environment is very welcoming and everyone does their part to help make our school the best it can be.
