In my school cares about the students as a person, not a race. We have more than 36 countries in our school where you can find more than 46 different languages. The news comers program makes students learn English faster here than other schools. I have been here for 3 years and my English improved since then. Students here are never scared to speak up their minds and speak to the world.

My name is Johana Sainma, it has been a great four years experience at Boston International high school. I have very supportive teachers and staff who devote their times to prepare me for college, future career and life readiness. There are various of programs in the school besides the subject classes that help me improve my academic grade level. I was an average grade students in my freshman year, but I became a high honor student from my sophomore year until now. My teachers always meet with my parents and discuss about my improvement academically. There are many activities for me to develop my talents and I was able to participate in model UN, Social Debate, Student Government, join the Adventure club and be part of a cape verDian creole class. This school shape me into a strong leader and a hard worker. In this school, I feel safe and welcome. Boston International brings teachers, students and families together to have a brighter future for the school and the students.
Without Boston International High School (BINcA), I would be lost in this new country. BINcA teaches me English, help me involve in both academic and life skills. I met awesome friends and great teachers at BINcA. My best experience at Boston International is to set up Haunted House for 3 years. I and my group feel so satisfied when students "complain" that "Haunted House was so scary". We put our energy, effort, idea, and time to build up a true BINcA Haunted House for students. The purpose is not only for people enjoy Halloween, but also to influence other kids to participate in school's activities so then they will like more about our school's culture and make school better.
