Borah is one of the best schools in the Boise School District. All of the teachers I have had are very involved and willing to help and support their students. Most people at Borah are also very kind and welcoming.
The staff and teachers were all very kind and considerate, and were always willing to help out students with whatever they were struggling with.
My sophomore and junior year were full of great classes and fun teachers. The coaches there are some of the best role models you'll ever see. The obvious highlight of the day was lunch, where we students were allowed to socialize and eat out with friends. My experiences were amazing.
I loved all the opportunities that the school provided and the staff is amazing! Even though this year with the pandemic has really taken a hit on everyone, students, and teachers, I feel like our teachers are doing everything they can to make us feel like we are in the classroom.
Borah High School is a great and prideful school. Borah has such a unique diversity and welcomes any one to the school. With it only being a three year school you would think that the teachers take longer to get to know their students. But at Borah the teachers deeply care and learn fast about their students.
Borah High School was a great school and overall a great experience. The teachers here are all amazing and great people. There isn't a class you wouldn't enjoy. The students here are good kiddos and are fun.
A lot of good teachers who care about theres students and their future, great consular program that provides countless resources for student looking to go in any field or study. Good extracurricular programs.
Borah was a very diverse school. It allowed many opportunities for students, everything from music and theatre arts to pottery, woodshop, and swimming. The faculty and teachers were always friendly and incorporated their personal experiences into their teachings.
Borah was welcoming to everyone of all nationalities and orientations. They have clubs like the gender sexuality alliance and the Spanish honor society. The teachers also help out of their own time to help students. For example one of my teachers had their first block be an open block for them, but since I was behind in his class he let me come in that first block and helped me catch up and pass the class. There was even a time were Borah hosted some Japanese students that came to Borah to learn America.
The teachers at Borah are absolutely amazing. I love the atmosphere, and how the place shows signs of kindness (not like the movies at all). I do wish our lunch breaks were longer for off campus eating. The lunch that they provide is not the best. I also wish they would fund less for sports and cheer, and fund for the music and art programs that have had the same broken stands and chairs since the 60’s. It is unfair that the school doesn’t fund for the music and arts programs anymore, and most of the money goes to sports. It should all have equal funding towards different programs. There should not be more fortunate and less fortunate programs in a school where “kindness and equality” is branded on the name.
It was very diverse and a lot of people. There was always something going on to be involved with. The only problem is that the students weren’t involved with the spirit / dress up days. Sports games were always a blast.
Borah High School is bland in how it approaches not only in its academics but also in its social hierarchy. Some of their teachers were condescending at times and patronized their students. Not that all of Borah's teachers acted this way, but a few of them hurt my self-esteem. As for the more academic side of Borah, it frankly just seemed like a lot of busywork to me. Most of the time, I felt like we were doing stuff that I would never use outside of school or prepare me for college. Borah isn't a bad school, and some teachers made me feel appreciated and helped me whenever I asked. My English teacher this year would always help me prepare for college and helped give me feedback on any form of writing. I am not a big fan of English, but her class made me understand the importance of writing and conversation. I wished the rest of the teachers at Borah could have been this way. In my opinion, Borah should adjust the curriculum to its students for when they leave school.
I like the teachers there. Something that I would change is that I never felt challenged. I didn't work hard on assignments or studied, but I still got good grades
Borah has its problems, most of the people are food but of course you have the bad groups of people.
What I like about Borah High school is every body is friendly and it feels as your welcome to school and I look forward to go to school just because every teacher is nice and help you in any way.
I have great teachers, and while the funding may be lax, I have received an excellent education.
I don't eat in the cafeteria, but the food is ok.

Borah is a great school. Almost all of the teachers are really nice. The only problems is that there is a large amount of swearing and revealing clothes.
