My time at BGHS is not very unique. Most of the teachers are pretty good at teaching the curriculum. The school is generally pretty safe, we don't have many fights and threats. But we do have a vaping problem, but that is becoming more common throughout the nation. I would say the only major problem is our bathrooms. Half of the locks are broken/useless or missing in the stalls, half of the sinks are covered with trash bags. And half of the sinks that are not covered barley let any water come out of the faucet. And there are some brown spots on the ceiling that no one really knows what they are.
The Bowling Green school district has always been my home, and I'm now a high school senior. I love our school district, as it focuses a lot on curriculums surrounding the arts, while also not neglecting the sports programs. It's a place where everyone can find something to be involved in, and I'm really thankful that teachers and administrators foster that importance.
