The teachers at Boonsboro High School are excellent. I feel they have adequately prepared me for my next adventure in college. There are many opportunities within the school to get involved in student activities, sports, and social events.
For a small school, Boonsboro really isn't bad. Most of the teachers I've had are stellar, and really get to know you as a student. However, there is little diversity within the school which makes it quite homogenous. Spirit Week and Homecoming are the main schoolwide events of the year (along with the Pep Rally on the first day), but beside these there aren't a ton of other events. Sports are really good, and pull in an admirable amount of students each season.
