Bowie High School 1

Crumbling, grubby building. Poor discipline, daily fights, frequent rumors of weapons, chaos and trash talk in the hallways. Skipping class and truancy are not enforced. For latchkey kids and students who choose to do bad, sex and drugs are readily available on or near campus. This school is being destroyed from within by immature apathetic students with criminal tendencies...

Some classes, like 9th grade Algebra I, never gave homework despite the importance of the material.

Most students who display persistence, grit and determination get little if any support from the school. The Navy JROTC program and some sports programs are the exceptions, where idealistic staff members and parents bolster the kids.

The good and conscientious teachers are outnumbered by lackadaisical, apathetic staff who are only serving time between paychecks.

My child rarely seems to have any homework and could care less about grades, but is continually passed on to the next grade.

The school bureaucracy shows little if any compassion, caring or empathy. The negative environment reinforces negative biases and stereotypes.

If you are nervous about sending you r child to Bowie here's everything you need to know. Urge your child to try for the SUMMIT program, this is program gives your child higher classes from the very first day of 9th grade. Also there are at the max 65 kids in the program for your grade. These are the kids that your child will be around for the next 4 years. To get into the program you have to have at-least a 3.0 all throughout their 7th grade year and the 1st quarter of their 8th year, with no behavior problems. If they don't make SUMMIT then try to get them into honors classes.But make sure that they are involved in extracurricular activities, they definitely help seperate the people that you should steer away from and the people you should start getting close to and be around with. This will keep your child out of trouble AND have good high school years . ~CLASS OF 2015 WE OUT!!!!!!!!!!

The Honors and AP classes are great and most of those students work hard. I have heard that it is different in many of the regular classes.
