I actually love the sheer size of Bozeman High School. There is always somebody new to meet and it keeps school exciting! I also love the value placed on sports and how not only the school but the whole community cares about the Bozeman Hawks in football, basketball, volleyball and more! The students are all so spirited and it makes high school so much more exciting and fun. I would love to see more funding given to activities in the school in all areas.

Overall, attending Bozeman High School has been a positive experience for me. I liked that there were a variety of AP and honors classes for me to choose from, as well as interesting electives. The only two things that were difficult for me while attending Bozeman High School were the lack of funding for arts programs (such as theatre) and the emphasis on sports. However, this pales in comparison to the other, positive aspects of my school. The teachers are all nice, and open minded. They are also accommodating to students. The library is wonderful as well due to electronics and the librarians. The College and Career Center is another excellent feature of Bozeman High. The ladies who run it are so sweet, and they are always happy to help with anything from finding a job, to helping with test prep, to finding scholarships. My experience at Bozeman High School has been largely positive, which is why I give it 4/5 stars!
I have very much enjoyed my experience at Bozeman High School for the past 4 years! There are opportunities to challenge oneself academically and athletically. I personally have been involved in sports and AP courses and found it to be very rewarding. I even had the opportunity to attend a trip to Costa Rica with a few fellow AP biology students. There are also many clubs and activities to get involved in throughout the school. There is even a club dedicated to the safety of our local ducks!
