Boise Independent School District Reviews

I think Boise School District is trying really hard to be a good school district, and is slowly making progress with helping students with disabilities and health problems to progress in school. This district, however, suffers with bullying and not solving issues between students and focusing more on school results than the health and wellbeing of the students. I think it could use some innovative ways to help students learn rather than rote memorization, and more proactive staff to aid students in succeeding. That being said, I got good grades all throughout school because of these people, and this school district produces results in tests.

The Boise School District is amazing, I have had a great experience in the school system. Many of my other friends go to school in meridian and/ or Nampa and they talk about bullying or racial problems and even the suicide rates. I am pretty involved with my school and I don’t see that. The Boise School District is filled with diverse kids from all over. The elementary schools feed into junior highs and high schools that mix all of us together. The cultural variety in my school district is amazing because I learn from my classmates and it helps me prepare for the real world. No human being is alike. We’re all different. The educators in my district are outstanding, I feel like I have a personal connection with many of my teachers. They make it their goal to help us succeed. Every year, every new class gets the same effort from the teacher. It doesn’t matter where you’re from or what you believe in. All that matters to our teachers is that you’re willing to learn.
The junior high I attended in the Boise School district was full of teachers passionate about their subject and teaching. Which was also found my high school! The Boise Independent School District is an amazing school district filled with great teachers and welcoming students.
