As a freshman, I was extremely nervous about going into high school, but I was immediately reassured once I first entered the campus of Boswell. The students and staff alike all are caring, and I feel completely welcome among everyone. Boswell undoubtedly offers the best high school academics and athletics in the school district. Along with this, its teachers truly care about their students. I’ve never been more academically successful since I began attending Boswell. I’m proud to say that I’m a pioneer!

I enjoyed my four years at Boswell because of the experiences and friends I made through the athletic training program. We all grew very close and learned about different injuries and treatment methods thanks to the head athletic trainer. I will miss the friends that I made here but will always have the memories. I am very excited to experience my university. With help from my coaches and parents, I have decided to study Nursing during my college years, because of the knowledge I gained about the medical field through my high school elective courses, I have hope that I will not feel overwhelmed once I am in a new atmosphere.
Boswell High School offers many classes, including AP and dual credit classes, and most of the staff is very welcoming. Almost every teacher that I have met has been extremely willing to support and help their students academically and tend to be sympathetic to both their student's academic struggles and to any mental issues they may display. There is a considerable selection for lunches and the school comes with a lunchroom as well as a bistro, although the food can be overpriced.

A lot of the people who attend Boswell are friendly and people of all genders, races, and sexualities attend. However, some of the students are unaccepting of minorities and bullying has sometimes been a problem, but normally the staff tries to prevent this (accepting clubs are available for this, like the GSA). Despite this drawback, Boswell is a great school for people focusing on sports, extracurriculars, and academia, and I would recommend it to anyone considering joining.
