Boulder Valley School District Reviews

I have been attending schools in the Boulder Valley School District since kindergarten. Now I am a senior in high school and I can conclude that overall my educational experience has been good. I have developed my own unique thought process and I'm sure every other student has as well. From elementary to high school, each teacher was helpful and resourceful. Each class was engaging and challenging enough to keep students interested. Although there were the occasional complaints about the taste of the cafeteria food or unprofessional faculty behavior (incorporating strong political bias in their teaching), I believe that the Boulder Valley School District prepared me enough to continue my education successfully.
Review Boulder Valley School District
The Boulder Valley School District has helped me to achieve my education goals over the 13 years that I have attended elementary, middle, and high school. I had a very positive experience at Lafayette Elementary, which was the fastest growing school in the area at the time, I greatly value my time at Angevine Middle School, which taught me the value of diversity, understanding, and kindness, and through the International Baccalaureate Degree program at Centaurus, I have been able to thoroughly prepare myself for college. At Centaurus, however, there have been cases of bullying to the point of suicide and bombs/bomb threats multiple times, which doesn't always leave me feeling extremely safe. I am not sure this is an issue with the district itself (or an issue with the United States and its culture in general) but it is one of the only negative things I have to say about the district itself.
My experience at Boulder valley school district was not that good. As a student who is going to graduate this year. If at of all the teachers didn't expand things. They made students tack test without understanding compleatly. Teacher lost paper that were turned in on time and lost them, then they marched them as late or missing. The lunach time was not grate either the food was under or over choked. The forced you to get vegtibles even those you weren't going to eat them, just thrown away. When it was a snowy day and a snow ball fight started administration targeted the minorety.
