School Official Point of View

Boulder Creek High school is a wonderful public school with something for everyone. The Lip Dub they did this past week is a perfect example of this. Every kid in the entire school 2600 kids, had a part in the show. There were the usual cheerleaders, student government, band, and athletes but there were also roles for the diversity club, GSA, manga, choir, theater, art, dance, pre-med, chess, interact, National Honor Society, key club, youth transition program, mathletes, visual voice, media production, engineering, FBLA, Educators rising, marketing DECA, computer science, water ski, mountain bike, hockey, creative writing, World cultures, global studies, teen library leadership, and even the ping pong club! Boulder Creek has something for everyone.

Boulder Creek is an awesome school. I went to Future Freshmen Night last week. The school looks so fun especially the band and the global studies club. It will be hard too, because the teachers will work you.

This school is perfectly fine. I've had 3 years of great teachers (a decent mixture of gen/Honors/AP) and all admins and counselors have been helpful. Its unfortunate to see some negative reviews but my one tip to prevent problems would be to take Honor/AP classes. You will find the most dedicated students here and classes will go a lot smoother. The teachers here also perform a lot better because they have students that actually want to be there.

This shool is complete garbage . Lots of things happen that admins do not know nor try to figure out .

Do not send your child to Boulder Creek HS. It is, at best, a below average high school. The principal has limited skills for the job and the last athletic director they had was horrible. The baseball, football and basketball program are not competitive at all and are getting worse. The head baseball coach is horrendous and has been looking to get another job for several years. Sandra Day, Pinnacle, and Cactus Shadow are all better choices.

Boulder Creek is an outstanding school for a self-starter to get that "next level" education experience they are looking for. The school is structured to mirror our society in America, where hard work is rewarded. Attitude and citizenship, as well as scholastic excellence, were encouraged in my son's classes. Academic, athletic and extracurricular studies are as good as the student cares to make them. I applaud the staff in acknowledging individuals who are there to learn and grow.

This is our thrid year and I now understand how everythign is fine until you need assistance from the school. I do not mean assistance because of a bad student, I mean an Honors/AP/Dual Enrollment over 4.0 GPA student. Whatever you do make sure you follow up on Dual Enrollment, as my student was told everything was fine and he was in the class for a semester to find out somehow the test was mis-placed or not taken, and "Dual Enrollment" for college pre-req was lost and they will NOT get credit. Very disappointed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My children attend Boulder Creek High School in Anthem and I must say I am not at all in favor of new common core changes. I feel the school system does not teach our children what they really need to learn as it is. The only thing the district as well as the State is interested in is high Aims scores and not teaching our kids the core of learning. Teacher's tell the students that the computer is there best friend and they can get there information from there so if a computer is teaching my child why do I pay tax's for a school & teacher that DO NOT perform there jobs. I feel you need to work on your teacher's first then you just may see the results form the students you are looking for before you go and change even more to our childrens education. And furthe more you say the new common core changes are going to be more confusing and the children will have more homework which is the LAST thing these kids need. They should be doing the majority of the work in the classroom with a teacher that can help them, not at home were the computer teach's them or us parents are left to help them when we have NO idea what they are doing. The school system in America is broken.

The teachers have been great to my son. He has been able to stay after school and get extra help and that has build his confidence level greatly.

My daughter attends BCHS and loves the teachers and her counselor is just amazing. Yes there are too many student's in this school however the PTA works in unity to provide a safe learning environment.
