Boise Independent School District Reviews

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.
Review Boise Independent School District
My son just graduated from Boise Senior High School and it was a fantastic experience. The teachers and staff are well educated and go above and beyond for each student. School spirit is amazing, everyone is very proud to be part of what is happening there. My only complaint would be that the buildings need to be updated. I love the old school, down town experience however old buildings need a lot of attention and as the flag ship of the district this building is neglected.
I've had no issues whatsoever with the district. All the teachers and staff are very helpful and driven to better the futures of kids. The only thing I would change is more money that was given to the district so that they could have the resources that they need!
