Bowie High School has excellent counselors. You have a friend and a teacher all in one. One think I would change is the dress code that would be nice. The dress code is too strict. Everyone should be able to wear what they’d like. To express themselves and at BHS I feel like we can’t do that with out getting into trouble or sent home.

Bowie High School is a very good school to attend, but it was not perfect. I would like to see more classrooms within the building. For example, if my theater class, we had to share our classroom with several different classes and it got a little frustrating after a while .
It it a great high school with lots of advanced courses. I like how this school exceeds in studies, sports, and band.
