The camaraderie amongst the students made my time in high school the best! The school had many resources available for college readiness. The school counselors were available to speak to the questions I had and they were more than willing to go out of their way to get me connected to resources for me. The administration wanted to make sure every student got a chance to succeed.

The notation experience at Bowie High School is showcased by the the attentions that you have by teachers. However, what I like about Bowie High School is the cordiality and the respect that everybody has with every person. There are no disparities between any type of people, the ambient is friendly, peaceful and overall there is amity with my classmates, teachers ,administrator and other people at school. There is no thing that I would really change from Bowie High School, the heed that the school has from the school principal is good because students are giving the most to be proud of this school.
I liked going to bowie high school because everyone is really friendly, and the atmosphere really contributed to my development as a person. I just wish that the school had done cooler things for senior events. I also didn’t like that the school stopped paying attention to the business magnet program. People went to this school for the business program, but it seemed to die out without any concern from the school.
