It is an unacceptable excuse for a school. They have gotten way out of hand with the control and discipline. They suspend students who can't afford the requirements for the dress code. Also, they disrespect their students.
This school has taken a turn in the right direction thanks to a real leader with solid ideas for overall success and supporting both teachers and student achievement, a fine balance that is hard to do. After working at this school with asst principals that support teachers, advocate for students and have a positive attitude, I am left with nothing but good feelings and memories. Yes, the students can be challenging, but just about every adult there IS constantly working to improve their craft. Teaching is hard work, if you don't believe so, go and try it for one day. Of course you have to have a 4-year degree, pass all of the certifications, have determination and get paid less than most other studied professions. Boca Ciega HS teachers and admin do it day after day and it shows.
I have a child in the medical magnet program and se really likes it and so do I, I have seen great changes in her. However I do not care for the AP o the program, she is non listening and rude. I believe her disiplin actions are a joke.............
I believe Boca Ciega is a great place for students to learn, especially the students in the medical magnet program. Any Parent who truly believes Bogie is a bad school needs to monitor their child better instead of blaming the school. They do a great job.
Bogie is a great school overall, especially their medical magnet program! The teachers become more than just teachers, but the students friends. Teachers are more than supportive and willing to help out whenever needed. The teachers make Boca Ciega a great place to be. But aside from that bogie is home to very determined pirates that don't let anything stop them from being the best they can be in both academics and extracurricular!
