Bow High School Reviews

Bow High School is a great school for people looking to make friends, and the staff is extremely helpful. Unfortunately, the school's required curriculum often forces students to compromise what they want to study, and what they can study to graduate with a Bow High School Diploma. This has been a point of dissatisfaction among a lot of the students. Recent efforts to give students more time during the school day to pursue their own interests have helped this issue often.

Bow High School has many lovely teachers, a solid building and facilities, great curriculums, and incredible drive toward improvement, both in the classroom and out. An experience at Bow High School has more than prepared almost all of its students for a college education. I am incredibly grateful to have been a student at Bow High School because I feel much more comfortable at college due to my strong educational background.
I like bow high school very much. It is easy to feel at home here and make many friends. It’s very safe and mostly everyone gets along with each other. The academics are good, but I would like to see teachers who are less biased. Some teachers also like to pick favorites, but overall most teachers teach very well and there is so much to learn and do here.
