Bowling Green Independent Schools Reviews

The school offers several AP courses, which is great. However, it is difficult to fit them into the schedule. The counselors are the best thing about the school -- they are professional and available inside and outside of the school hours. Sports is a major focus, which can be frustrating to a student with an academic and arts focus. My class in particular has been full of girl cliques since elementary school. I wish that someone had worked on busting that up.

I'm very confident about our college readiness programs. Ever since I entered the school, I was overwhelmed with all the presentations, guest speakers, and meetings the school provided to us. From tips on taking standards tests to how to apply for scholarships, my school made sure that all the students weren't lost on their journey of college preparation. Along with students at our school, I was satisfied with the AP classes we had. My school was known for having the most AP classes. Through AP classes I was able to learn the material in college level and experience what college was actually going to be like. Classes focused on learning by ourselves by reading the textbook just like colleges. One thing I wasn't happy about was our school food. By senior year they had to change the whole lunch system because they got so many complaints. Overall, Bowling Green High School was a good stepping stone for me before I stepped up to college.
What I like about Bowling Green Independent Schools is how much the teachers and staff care about you. The teachers are constantly making sure everyone in the class fully understands what is being taught, and the AP teachers prepare you for college in various ways. There are so many clubs, teams, and activities to be involved in at Bowling Green Independent Schools, especially at Bowling Green High School; there is something for everyone so no one feels left out or abandoned. I would not change where I have been going to high school if I had the chance to. Bowling Green Independent Schools are excellent in every way possible.
