Bowdon High School Reviews

I like how involved the community is involved with the school and vice versa. As a school system we do things that i think are quite nice. For example , every christmas our Art class goes to local small businesses in town and paints the windows. The schools Hon. Spanish 4 class goes to the elementary school and teaches the kids basic Spanish. The community is involved with the school. Every year for the main football game theres a bonfire as a "warming up" for football players. Its a pretty close communituy. I also like that Bowdon does hold on to a fee traditions. Something I would like to see change is for the school to acknowledge serious problems. For example, most schoolshold some kind of bullying assemply or mental health assembly. In all 4 years that I have been here we have only had one person talk to us about mental health. I think its a serious issue among teens and should be adressed.

While it is a small school it offers many opportunities to brighten anyone's future as well as give back to the community! I would not have wanted to go to any other school.
Overall, I had an average experience at BHS. I would consider BHS to be a place where people felt safe. There were hardly any issues with violence or threats being made to the school, unlike other schools near us. The teachers were excellent teachers, although some teachers were more tuned into the kids than others.
