I love the small town aspect of the school. Having transferred my junior year to Boulder City I was really scared that I would be unable to fit in and make friends. However, my experience was nothing but positive. Plus this school has the best counselors ever!
I like the accepting and fun atmosphere of Boulder City High School. Boulder City is a small town, and I felt welcomed by the students the very first day I stepped foot on campus. BCHS is well-taken care of with its custodial staff and regular maintenance crew. The students are energetic, positive, and decisive. Through the many state championships in athletics, the high-achieving student population, and the wonderful teachers, BCHS is a great school. Although it could improve in diversity of students, it ranks 4/5 on my list.
