Bolton High School Reviews
I do not think that this school teaches students about the importance of respect, honorability or prepares them for the challenges of life or college. Cheating IS rampant here, and other schools are FAR ahead. How this school received a high test rating I do not know. Apparently there was an error.
The education at this school is very low class. The students here are not challenged in the least. Cheating is rampant throughout this school. The band is awful... especially the saxophones. The curriculum is really not that strong AT ALL! I have met students at many other schools who are VERY far ahead of the Bolton students.
Bolton High School was the best thing that ever happened to my son. The teachers met his individual needs for each subject and he was encouraged to strive for his best. Mr. Paul Smith was the Principal at the time and he not only knew every student in the school, he made it a point to search out students whom he knew needed extra attention. No student slips through the cracks here. My son graduated with 23 college credits and ended up graduating from college in 3 1/2 years with 2 degrees. Bolton prepared him well for college and their caring teachers cannot be equaled by any private school!
