I absolutely loved attending Don Bosco. I was faced with so many opportunities to get involved in the classroom, on the court or field and volunteer at local events. The school pushed me to excel in my academics and strive to deliver the best results. I wouldn't be where I am today without the caring teachers, excellent community and overall education.

Wonderful tight knit community. They are all involved and invested in the student body. The student outlook is very positive and they look out for each other. Academics and sports are both very important. We had Football Champions, Wrestling Champions and 3rd place Basketball teams this year.
The teachers at this school always want to help us students, especially the students that are struggling more. They are all very knowledgeable with what they are teaching. Sometimes grades go in a little slow, but they have a lot of other classes homework and tests to grade so it is understandable. Most of the teachers here always get a long with the students. Some are always happy to have us in class because we won't cause much trouble.
