Bowling Green High School is very good for those students wanting to lean and move onto college. The school try's to set up to prepare students for how college is going to work. Many teachers also help students prepare for the work ahead to apply to colleges. The teachers at the high school try to do as much one-on-one time to help kids as much as possible. The school also offers many diverse sports and clubs to keep kids involved.

The Bowling Green community is amazing and you feel at home. Teachers care and a variety of AP and Honors classes are offered. Sports teams are pretty good. However, the building needs renovations and air conditioning.
My experience with the BG schools was not great. The administration is less than average because they don't take the time to know you personally unless you are a great athlete. Most teachers are great, others aren't. Overall it is a safe environement but it is not inclusive and many of the staff don't set you up for success.
