All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

Horrible principal but caring teachers! Had to take our kids elsewhere as principals ego was too much to handle! Very self absorbed person with terrible leadership skills. Teachers cant stand her either!

I have had three children at Boltz over the past five academic years. In our experience, we have found Boltz to be a terrific place for our kids to go through the often challenging middle school years. Every one of my kids has experienced teachers who have shown caring and kindness to them. They have been challenged and have grown academically. Their critical thinking skills have been stretched and their writing skills improved. When one of my kiddos experienced a boy who was harassing her, it was appropriately addressed immediately and the harassment stopped. Boltz has a WEB Leader program and other school culture programs in place which encourage acceptance. Teachers and counselors have spent time to hear when I've expressed concerns and made adjustments as they are able. They have truly looked out for the best needs of my children. My kids and I feel welcomed at this school. The student population is both economically and socially diverse which is a huge positive in my book. Don't let test scores fool you. Boltz has a fantastic GT program and many, many dedicated and excellent teachers. My children have and are thriving here and I recommend this school to others.

I m a student; I m not the most popular kid or the outcast. But there are clicks; the parents don t get it unless you re the actual student. Most teachers don t seem to care if you pass or not. They treat the students like 5 years old. The bullying is out of hand! Rich to poor, pretty to ugly, minority to white, nerd to popular; it s all here. The teacher s don t care, if they do, their afraid to do anything to help. Teachers worry about people holding hands but not whether or not someone is getting harassed. Boltz needs to get it together. They only really care about the Pre-Ap kids, other than that the needs of students don t matter. Boltz is a wanting to-be 5 star rating academic school. If your child maybe has a hard time fitting in or a little "different" don t put them in this school. I have participated in this school and have made a great effort to fit in but the kids are disrespectful and rude. Teachers don t always care, and the average student is treated poorly. The favorites get everything. Same kids get the lead roles, and anything worthwhile. That's how it feels to be a kid who has been harassed because I m smart, and not most popular. I m sick of it. Good luck (:

Boltz is amazing!!! My daughter has been able to do great work while still have time for friends. It really allows her to learn without stress. Boltz has been a great school for my daughter and is a great pick for future reference.

Both my kids went to Boltz last year, and my daughter will go again this year. The principal is engaged with parents and students and the teachers are top notch.

most of the teachers are really kind to the students and very nice to one another teachers. mostly there are no clicks here such as groups like popular nerdy so on and so forth.

Boltz is great! I thought the other review was incomplete and untrue. I think that people (other than parents) should be able to post their reviews on the site. Everyone knows that no one has anything to say, unless it is a complaint. I am disappointed in your site's one-sided view of things. I don't think I would make any decisions based on the poor quality of information available on your site.

I was very unimpressed. Looks great until your child attends.
