I love the diverse range of people at Bowie High School. The school really offers a great range of people from different ethnicities, backgrounds, and culture. With such a wide range of people all around me, I felt like I became a much more open-minded individual during my time at Bowie High School.

With that said however, if I could change one thing about Bowie, I would change how fights were somewhat frequent at the school. This could be achieved by perhaps implementing more security or by implementing some form of enrichment to teach people that fighting at school is disruptive and is unnecessary.

I love going to Bowie! If you get involved where you can showcase your talents, high school is such an amazing opportunity. Bowie is a competitive school that allows each kid to be challenged while still having a quality high school experience. I’m involved in sports and Bowie has amazing athletic programs that compete on the state level every year! I’m also involved in fine arts and Bowie has exceptional, award winning programs to be apart of! I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else!
Overall it was really great! As a current student, all of the teachers are nice and very understanding. Teachers do care about you and your grades. And not a day goes by without some type of fun in it. Not everything is great as every object in this world is in some way imperfect. There are fight and teachers who care nothing about the student or what they're teaching, but it's like 1-5% of the school. Bowie shouldn't be judged by their disadvantages.
