I like the size of our school, having less students allows the classes to be smaller making learning much easier for me. We have good teacher who care about our education and really want to see our knowledge expand. Starting freshman year was scary here because our old school was two story's something I wasn't use to. Luckily we have amazing staff that helped guide us along to make sure we got in time for our classes. We had a huge library that helped students who wanted a quite place to study get their work done. These past 4 years have been amazing, i'm happy to say I got to graduate with the help and support from all the teachers here and the studying I did. We have a class dedicated for seniors that helps us get prepared for college and make sure we have gotten everything we need done including things like ACT, SAT, scholarships and our knowledge on important terms we will need in the future. My experience here at Bonham High School has been the best both physically and mentally.

My experience overall at Bonham High School has been fairly good. I have grown up in Bonham, so I have always looked forward to being in high school here. My first two years, our school was one of the oldest in Texas, so in the winter time it was very cold in the school and in the summer time it got really hot, because our heater and AC did not work. My junior and senior year however, has been a lot better, because we got a new school and our girl sports have been doing pretty good. I think the teachers are getting better and are really trying to help the kids more than they have in the past. Bonham is growing everyday and is getting better overall.
It was overall good for such a small school. Teachers are a hit or miss. Most of my teachers were excellent, but there are a few incompetent teachers you will no doubt come across in the four years of attending. I really wish they'd supply more money to the arts department. Absolutely no money goes to the theater and any expenses are pulled right out of the teacher's pocket or come from what we can scrape up. Also, the people are mostly okay, but there is quite a bit of drama, as to be expected when you're school is composed of hicks and wannabe hood. If you're in advanced classes, however, you should be able to avoid most of that and make some great friends.
