When we, the students, transitioned from middle school to the flaunty new high school we all believed the world was crushing down on us. As time went by our curiosity continued to flourish. Bourbon County assisted me into growing my personality, extending my knowledge and building my social skills. I have a special counselor in my heart that I owe my success to, forever. The only thing I would change is the technology used. Equipment could be better.

During my many years in the Bourbon County school district I can honestly say that overall it has been a great experience. Sure, there are someday when I just don't want to be at school at all, but every teenager feels this way about every school. I've been lucky enough to attend school in the bourbon county district since kindergarten. Its been an amazing school with just as amazing teachers!
I like the science classes and AP classes I have been a part of in my time here. The teachers were helpful and taught me a lot about the subjects, especially AP Chemistry with Dr. Smart. I enjoy participating on our school soccer, tennis and academic teams. The one improvement needed is communication about opportunities for academic advancement and scholarships.
