Boyd County High School Reviews

I really enjoyed my experiences at Boyd County because of the student to teacher connection and the endless possibilities accessible to all students. The teachers were very included in the students life and let the pick the path they wanted for high school. They kept the students involved with outside information that may help them succeed in the future. My personal favorite possibility at Boyd is how you could take college classes, through Marshall University, while receiving college credit. I have gained over 20 college credit hours through Marshall during my time at Boyd County High School, without having to pay full price for the class.

Boyd is very good with offering a large range of classes. The East Campus is a vocational school with classes like welding, agriculture, and fashion design. There are also many electives such as choir offered. Since the school has about 600(?) students, there is a nice selection of college and AP courses that are fairly rigorous and help earn college credit. I enjoy it at the school.
Boyd County High school is a top of the line school in Eastern Kentucky. The high school has very friendly, yet professional staff. Their teachers are some of the best in the state. Boyd County excels in academics as well as athletics. The school has one of the best athletic programs around. They also have a wide variety of academic opportunities. I would personally recommend Boyd County High School, as well as their entire district, to anyone.
