As a parent of a Senior and a Sophomore I am absolutely happy with Boca High. It's a great school, with a great team of staff and teachers.
I'm a senior at Boca High and have gone here for about 3 years now. I have to say that I love the school and the majority of the staff. Most teachers are always helpful and provide a good learning experience. The teachers at this school want their students to succeed in getting an excellent education and getting into the school of their choice. I find that the counselors and college counselor are extremely helpful and really like what they do. Overall, I have been to many schools in the past and I have to say that Boca High is excellent and has a staff that loves what they do.
I'm a Senior at Boca High and I absolutly love the school. The teacher, the deans, our principle. Boca High is a great was to get with friends and learn at the same time. Everyone at Boca High is always so happy and whenever something happens at school Dr. McKee is right ontop of it fixing it to make it a better learing eviroment. Also, the teachers try there hardest to help the students reach a goal, such as passing the FCAT, now as a senior I can tell you from personal experience, being told that I didn't have to take the FCAT anymore I went up to my teachers and thanked them for all the hard work and patience they had with not just me but the whole class. All in all Boca High is a great school to attend and I love being there.
I absolutely love this school. It makes me mad to see anything negative written about it. Dr. McKee is amazing and has done so many great things for the school, while the STEM program is great for students willing to take the academic challenge. The college and career center helped me figure out college apps and my grades. The deans and the teachers are wonderful and there are so many extracurriculars: drama, band, clubs, community service, sports and of course a new field. Oh, and by the way (to the parents who claim our new principal is not good), we are an 'A' school and the majority of AP students pass the AP tests.
I love boca high it's amazing, are principal is amazing and are teachers are great too.We have brand new building and are weeks away to a new football field .I can't wait.
i love going to boca high...its a great enviornment and i learn a lot...the teachers ar awesome!
My son has now graduated from BRHS. He got a terrific education and incredible guidance in getting into the college of hos choice, Univ. of Florida.
Boca High is a great school. Staff are easy to get a long with and make an effort to help you in most situations. No guidance for students who want to go to college? A section of an entire building is dedicated to just that purpose. - Student who got guidance on college
Even thoug i sometimes get frustrated with the recently changed dress code policy, i know it is for all of our best interest and I wouldn't change my school if I had a choice
boca high is an amazing school. there's a fantastic principal and all the teachers care so much about the students. every teacher would go out of their way to help a student to succeed in any way.
This is a fabulous school with a wonderful Principal and the most caring teachers in Palm Beach County.
There's no guidance for students wanting to go to college. This school is playing to the FCAT, nothing more. I'm thoroughly disappointed in the STEM program. The teachers try, but most are not up to the task, some are good at 'yessing' the principle. If there were a way to put my child in another school she would be, unfortunately no other school offers this math & science. Extracurricular activities, if interested in Christian prayer groups this is the school for you.
My sister was told that she was fine for graduating but it turns out she didn't reach the requirements. They told us this a few days before she was to graduate. She ended up going to summer school because the teachers and councelors were uniformative. The principal tries to throw his Christianic views on everyone. Most of the staff is rude and unhelpful. The art department has failed due to Dr. McKee's cutbacks on teachers because he doesn't get along with them. It just pisses me off so much. I hate this school with a passion. Nevertheless all my friends go to this school and I don't want to leave them.
This school has excellent teachers supported by an outstanding principal. Boca High, again, is an 'A' school under the leadership of Dr. McKee. In addition, their scores keep climbing each year.The students love their principal and AP's, and they are always available. I am extemely happy with all extracurricula activities and what I have seen this year! Morale is high...great school spirit, and warm atmosphere with excellent academics, caring teachers and staff, and happy students.
The Band program is excellent under the new director. The school's guidance counselors have all been dismissed or transferred. Without expert guidance counselors, helping with school selection, scholarships, and grant applications, students headed to college from this school face severe disadvantages. The STEM program has real potential but is lacking guidance at all turns. The teachers are working hard to deliver on their promises, but without real help from above. The principal consistently pushes a christian agenda in his public speeches.
this is a very nice school with an excellent staff and impreasive teachers.
I wish that I had something positive to add about this school. Its just okay. Too many program cuts, too much wasted money on programs that don't exist. Very hard to communicate with your childs ap/guidance counsler. My other child starts High School in August 05 he will be going to west Boca and yes I will be driving EVERYDAY from East to West and back. My older one will be a senior so She would like to finish with her friends. I also hear a large number of teachers are leaving! That is always a concern!
My daughter is graduating, one of the top 5 of her class. Prior to principal Geoff McKee it was a great school. He removed all the guidance counselors, there is no help with scholarships or preparation for college. Changing from the 4 x 4 block back to a 7 period day has been a fiasco. Very few will pass the AP classes this year. The teachers on a whole were great, although with the new principal, most of the really good teachers left for greener pastures. It is very, very sad that such a fantastic school has slipped this poorly in such a short period of time.
This is my daughters first year at Boca High. She is comming from a Christian School in Boca. I can say so far it has been an excellent experience. We Absolutely love our old school and even have a daughter still there, however Boca High offers such diversity and real-world challeges that my daughter felt she needed to excell in her future college plans. The Principle is outstanding and very available to all. The schools scores have gone up accross the board and the problem reports have gone down. Awesome Leadership is what I see.
