I've enjoyed my experience here at Bolivar Schools. I played volleyball all four years and have participated in many after school activities. The best part of the year is definitely homecoming. The whole town gets together to cheer on the high school football team. The energy this event is super positive and uplifting. I think the school does a good job of encouraging a friendly environment overall. I would advise anyone to make a stop at a Bolivar school. The staff is welcoming and nice and the kids are so sweet!

Personally, they do a brilliant job. I know I'm unique and a wanted part of the band there. They meet my every expectation, and exceed it with ways that they don't have to offer, like OTC classes, and the like!
Very small, strict, and religiously based. They don’t cut down on bullying or any drama between those considered “popular”. Anything that happens, they will just list as, “We tried our best to solve the problem.” When, in reality, they didn’t do anything.
