Don Bosco High School Reviews
At Don Bosco high school, I enjoyed the relationships students can have with each other. Being such a small school, it is easy to know every student. Don Bosco is very focused on athletics and it would be nice to see more focus on the fine arts and campus ministry programs. It would also be nice to see more student-teacher relationships. It seems as if the students are afraid of the teachers and just trying to get through the day instead of having an understanding of each other.
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.
Don Bosco is a great High School for athletics. The best part about it is the support you see from the community in everything you do. I would like to see some change in administration, such as being more open to change when things aren’t working out.
