Bondurant-Farrar High School Reviews
Rating 3.57 out of 5 141 reviews
I have been going to the Bondurant-Farrar school district for about 6-7 years now. I moved here for my 5th grade school year and it’s been pretty good. People are friendly and the school system works well. The school is small and everyone knows each other which is great and the school district/ city is starting to grow. The downside of Bondurant is that there is little to no diversity. I am of Asian descent, I am half Thai and Lao and in this school I would say the percentage of whites that attend the school is about 95%. This could be taken either way but there is no diversity and there have been incidents of ignorance with this. I have experienced racism from this school but it was the students and not from the school district. Other than this, the education, staff, and school district is pretty good.
I have been at Bondurant-Farrar for almost all my years of schooling. I love the size of the school. While sometimes a small town isn't always they best environment, I loved only have about 160 kids in my class and being able to know everyone. I personally had a good high school experience. I have for the most part always liked my teachers, and felt like they have done a good job delivering the criteria. I have also had a great experience with sports and being able to make such great relationships with my teammates. I am lucky to say I have had a good experience, but there are still a few things I would've changed about it. I wish I had reached out to my counselor sooner and talked more about college and how to prepare. I feel like I would have liked to know more about the whole process.
There is alot of good to come from our school and the learning experience is great. On the other hand there are always things that need to be better and rules that need to be changed.
I have had some of my best and worst times at Bondurant-Farrar High School. For the most part, the teachers and staff are all so kind and willing to help. There are others who don't care much about anything. I'm sure it's that way at a lot of schools, though. I gave the school three out of five stars because it's just a regular, old school. There is really nothing that stands out or is special about it.
Bondurant Farrar is a tremendous school district and community that I am blessed to say that I grew up in. There was never a day that I didn't feel safe or unwelcome. The teachers care about you, and your personal well being and want you to succeed. Bondurant has made me into the responsible, knowledgeable, and strong woman I am today, and I am grateful.
I think that our school is a pretty good community, but there are often problems with kids accepting each other for who they are. We are often quick to judge and we form cliques very easily. On the other hand, the teachers are very nice and the adults do a pretty good job overall.
I found some aspects of it to be good, such as a select few teachers who were great in educating students and preparing them for life after high school. That being said, the administration at times seemed to not care about how their students feel and many teachers don't perform adequately enough to be real educators. For the most part, the only teachers that did actively care for their students led the extra-curricular classes and a few who taught required classes.
The teachers seem to be very involved and helpful, however the Administration/Front Office staff is extremely poor. They are very unhelpful, condescending and just plain rude. Counselors are pleasant, but not helpful for new students and seem to be bothered when asking for help.
The teachers are good. They offer dmacc classes for free. They offer a lot of sports too. The school is small so the staff actually know the students.
bondurant is an overall very welcoming school. i moved to the district at the start of my freshman year and i never felt unwanted or outcast. it has great teachers and many opportunities for everyone!
Our school is very much like a family. Our opportunities grow with each year that I am here, and we are constantly gaining new students. We are growing at a pretty rapid rate, and the school has been preparing for the larger, younger classes.
The teachers are great, especially the art teachers. The only problem is the administration and the students. LOTS of bullying due to diversity in students, and the town of Bondurant is very-very-very conservative.
Bondurant -Farrar High School has opportunities for all kids whether they want to play sports or need help academically. It's a small school with a lot of community involvement.
Even though our school district is growing, at Bondurant you know everyone in your school, students and teachers. It's very easy to get help with your work. Teachers at Bondurant want you to succeed and are willing to help you improve. Also, you get to know kids at your school very easily because it is a smaller school.
Overall, I really enjoyed my time at Bondurant-Farrar High School. The extra curricular activities are amazing, and I made all of my friends from them! I did band and color guard in HS and I absolutely loved it! The teachers here are amazingly nice and do their best to help you out with problems. Overall my experience in HS has been pretty alright thanks to Bondurant-Farrar High School.
I really enjoy going to Bondurant-Farrar High School because the teachers there care about their students. 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. I think that students want to come to school everyday because of the teachers and people there to help us become successful!
Overall the teachers work very well with students and almost make it hard for a child to fail. The administration on the other hand is lacking, and that is a generous term. The principal only has a select few students that he goes out of his way to talk to and any other time he just sits in his office and the AD makes it very clear that he will only support athletes and their decisions if they benefit him or the school in some way.
