I've gone to Bolles since I was in the sixth grade, and this school is amazing. The academics are top notch, the teachers are incredible, the clubs and opportunities to be involved are plentiful, and the administration is incredibly helpful!

Overall my experience at The Bolles School was rather irregular. The diversity is pretty good as I do not like nonintellectuals. Many racist people go to this school which is why I would not recommend it for any people of color. I see many white students attempting to control colored people and telling them what to do. Although there are many white people here, many of them are Jewish and not much diversity. If a friend asked if he should go to this school I would recommend going to a public school. This school is very cliquey and although the academics are rather superb, some teachers can be quite sapphic. I would much rather go to a Public School than this school. Not funny. Didn't laugh.
I previously went to Stanton College Prep and absolutely dreaded it. I was extremely hesitant about transferring to Bolles due to the fact that I was paranoid the teachers at Bolles would be just like the ones at Stanton. However, I was absolutely wrong. Bolles has excellent teachers and staff members who will do whatever they can to help you and to ensure you pass. It is honestly very hard to fail at Bolles with the amount of help and guidance they offer to students. I graduated last year and Bolles has not only paved my way to success but with the help of Bolles I have never been rejected by any college I applied to and am currently attending my dream college and excelling at my dream major. Thank you Bolles. I owe my success to this school.
