My overall experience was okay. I absolutely LOVED being in the choir department, however, Bowie favored the sports department way more than the fine arts department; which is very disappointing and effected the fine arts department. Majority of the teachers were pretty great with teaching, although, there was some teachers that I questioned on how they got hired because they wouldn't/didn't teach. Bowie also kept saying how they were highly against bullying, but never really actually take bullying serious. Bowie definitely did show favoritism among students.

Bowie is a fun environment probably not the safest or mist educational and we kinda suck at sports but hey that doesn’t have anything to do with me. I’m just writing this to qualify for scholarship money you know how it be. It’s a lot going on in the the world right now but remember BLACK LIVES MATTER. Police choose to become an officer they know when they sign up ghat their job is to protect and serve and that can be dangerous we know cops lose their lives it sadly is part of the job. That doesn’t mean I think cops should just be killed but neither should African-Americans we didn’t choose to be born black and we shouldn’t be pre-judged because of the color of our skin. It honestly makes no sense that situations we were exposed to such as poverty, drugs and other horrific things we should be stereotyped as being threatening. We had to survive in hard conditions which made us angry, frustrated, and just reckless. But not all of us and we shouldn’t be pre judged.
I liked the diversity of James Bowie High School and as a minority I felt welcomed and never judged for being who I am. I was well prepared for college by the AVID program that I participated in for 3 years. It was a very safe school, bullying was never an issue. The education was great! Amazing teachers
