The academic environment was great at Boise High School. As students, we have a lot of academic opportunities compared to other public schools in the state such a the "Science Bowl", "Economic Summit", free SAT testing, government grants that cover the majority of the cost of our AP tests. I really enjoyed this school, and I had been to two others my freshman year to compare. Boise High was by far the greater high school. Also, the staff does a great job at raising awareness about peer to peer treatment so bullying was very low even though we had all types of ethnicities, groupings, social classes, etc.. I felt well prepared to advance onto college.
