Bonita High School is a superb school, with nearly all aspects of school-life flourishing. Arts, sports, and most-importantly academics are all taken seriously there. It is currently a California distinguished school. The campus is a great size, not too large and classes are easy to find. If you are struggling in a subject, there are so many options of classes to fit your needs. Bonita has a fantastic Freshman CORE program, and an abundance of athletic options for every season with friendly coaches. The arts program is also one of the best I've ever heard of, with complex theatre arts classes and clubs, a fantastic array of bands, an abundance of art classes ( such as jewelry making, and one of the best choir programs in the nation. Bands have performed at the LA County Fair, and in many competitions (always winning awards). In short, this school absolutely covers the triple A (arts, acedemics, and athletics) and should definitely be a consideration for people looking for a successful high school life.
Great behind the wheel students. Most of Bonita High School students are very defensive. They look out for others.
If you have an over achiever child they will be treated much differently than if you have a child who struggles and/or has learning difficulties. Those with very high grades and good test scores are treated well, those who struggle are treated with distain and are sometimes humiliated by the teachers.
We have been very pleased with the Education 2 out of our 3 children have recieved at Bonita, the third will enter BHS in 2013. We are proud to say our oldest is graduating in 4 years at Berkeley with an Engineering degree. Her success in college stemmed from the support and the academic rigor during her years at Bonita. Thank you teachers, staff and Administrators.
Your kids are in danger at this horrible school. At this very moment, Bonita High School is being investigated by the California Department of Education for refusing to let parents participate in meetings regarding their children. The CDE is currently investigating violations of ELEVEN different federal and state laws. The special education teachers and school psychologists are incompetent - so are their general education teachers. At a meeting held at Bonita High School a month ago, it was discovered the their teachers are completely unaware of the No Child Left Behind Act. Run, don't walk from Bonita High School if you want your child to receive an education. They've harmed my child - don't let them to the same to yours. At Bonita High School, your child will be left behind.
Bonita High School is the cream of the crop. If you want your kids to have the best time in high school, and still learn a lot...make them go to Bonita. I had so much fun being involved in clubs sports and asb, it made me wish that high school was 6 years instead of 4! Most of the teachers are amazing and very helpful. They take their job very seriously and still make the classes fun and will joke around with the students. So basically the definition of amazing is Bonita High School!!
We have a handicapped son and we were very impressed with the special education teachers. They are supportive and really listen to the parent and the child. They really care and pushed my son just the right amount. When he would be enrolled in a class with the jocks they would immediately transfer him so he would get teased. We were so proud when he graduated with his class in 2008.
This school is amazing. It not only has teachers who care about their students and stay hours after school, come in early in the mornings, and spend their lunch periods to help students, but they also connect with them. The school is such a close knitted school. Teachers and students are friends and it's a very friendly environment. When I moved and had to come to this school, I was surprised and shocked at how nice everyone was. Not only that but they have the most amazing arts programs. Band has amazing shoes, Drama puts together great performances, and Art is displayed proudly. And that's just the students and teachers! There's also so much parent involvement that helps make this school that much better.
Our school is in the top 100 school listings for CA, and they speak the truth. I'm currently a student there and feel the teachers are deserving more credit to their teaching methods. The school does a lot for our students by pumping up rallies and giving goals for everyone at their own pace, that way they challenge each student within their level, not expecting a 2.0 student to be 3.0, but perhaps a 2.5. I just feel the school deserves the money especially because though the teachers are great, not all of our classrooms have a full set of books for each individual student! Nor does our school have any lockers, so students are forced to carry all their books and thus a higher chance at lost/stolen textbooks that are already in low quantity. So there are a lot of helpful ways Bonita High School could use the money wisely, and this is coming from the student! Cheers to all (:
Bonita has educated my 2 grandchildren well, and it has many excellent programs. The music program, is especially worth mention. I believe that Bonita cultivates the entire child in all areas, emphasizing educational growth and creativity. Bonita is excellent preparation for any college the graduates wish to attend.
Bonita High is a wonderful school due to all the support the students recieve from the teachers, parents, and community. My daughter is getting a great education while also enjoying her high school years!
Bonita High School is my alma mater and my children attended the school. The school has a fair and secure atmosphere, which helps student grow intellectually and socially. The school also encourages the natural creativeness of the students. Bonita High School's administration and faculty enable each student to flourish in a safe and nurturing atmosphere. Students at Bonita receive the education they deserve, which will benefit them for years to come.
Bonita has the best teachers, they are committed to making their students successful adults and leaders in their communities.
From academics, arts, music and sports our school rocks! Teachers and parents are always pitching in for our kids.
I admire how the teachers and administrators along with parents, show up to the school activities to support thier team and students.
The school has very high academic standards. The school has a very nice atmosphere. The teachers are very approachable and respond back quickly to parent concerns. The athletic program is very competitive.
A great school for both education and also a great school for the expansion of proper thinking for students of the high school age.
I am a Senior at Bonita and this is a really good school to go to if you want to learn and have fun at the same time. The teachers are really helpfull and will do anything to help you succede. I recommend this school to any student looking for a good school.
