Bowdle School District Reviews

We love our small town school and the benefits of small class sizes and teacher to student ratios. This makes a big difference as students work to achieve success and reach mastery of their core subjects. Our teachers take a true interest in their students ensuring each student receives the best instruction possible. Students are encouraged to be active participants in their education, encouraging them to excel not only academics, but athletics and extra-curricular clubs as well.

I transferred after a toxic past at my old high school. The staff, teacher, and students were all very welcoming to me. They are so close it's like a big old family
Some of the teachers are great. But then there is also some that are just down right lazy. They don't really want to do the job to help children that struggle in school. The special education department is slacking and in not wanting to stick to and actually try to help children that struggle. The rules seem to change from one student to the next.
