The core curriculum at Bowling Green High School is the best in the area. The focus is clearly on academics and they expect nothing but top performance of their students in all classes, particularly the AP and Pre-AP. If your child is college bound, they need to enroll at Bowling Green High. The county schools also are good, but the curriculum is geared toward serving the masses vs. focusing on preparing your child for college. The Purple Spirit is something that you can’t ignore, once a Purple, Always a Purple, the culture is amazing!

Bowling Green High School makes EVERYONE feel involved and important. We are pushed to do our best and participate in school activities and clubs. Our teachers are top-notch and the environment is perfect!
My experience at Bowling Green High School was great, I loved all my teachers especially my band teacher. Joining band was the best thing I could have ever done in high school. I made lots of friends from all different grades their was 110 students that were in band. I would go to all the football and basket ball games with the band. Best part was the band gets in for free. I feel like if every student would join a group or a club their high school experience would be great.
