I liked how well everyone knew each other and I did like some of my teachers. Others not so much, I think they should really evaluate teachers more than they do also randomly, as it would actually keep them on their toes and teaching well. I can recall 4 teachers in just high school that I learned absolutely nothing from, and it wasn't because I wasn't trying, because everyone felt that way. I think that the athletics department could use some changing, which they did some once I left, so maybe it is better. Lunch was always bad and dreadful, but if you didn't bring one ya had to eat it or go hungry. Hardly any good food. I was a student here, proud not to be anymore. That should sum up the review.

I give my school four stars because I have enjoyed my time here and have come across many passionate teachers and students who compel me to continue learning. I did not give it five stars because, like most schools, there are those few teachers who don't have the same passion for teaching and make learning and dreadful process fort he students. There was definitely more good than bad, but the bad still make an impact.
My experience at James Bowie High School has been a rocky road for me. I feel that the academics are growing but the teachers and staff are not. I feel that our staff doesn’t give us there all and that what makes us fall off. Don’t get me wrong some of the teachers I had or had known they gave it there all to make us better and I appreciate them for wanting better for us, but I feel that should be everyone. But my experience could’ve been better but I still appreciate the ones who gave me good vibes in wanting better for my learning styles.
