i go to bow memorial school and think it is wonderful. The school's teachers are really nice. i'm in 7th grade and think bow need to improve on the homework. Somtimes there is just too much!and other times there is little! There are so many activities too choose from. I love the specials because health goes to gym on Tuesdays and Thursdays and if you have gym in the winter you will have health in the summer! Bow's students rarely bully and are very nice! I think bow could improve on less homework but other than that, i think b0w r0cks!

You don't have to worry about bulling in this school....because the children are much more educated to do such a thing. Education is the best here. My daughter is in the 8th grade and she is learning 9th grade math. Although this school can be rather hard on student that are coming from a 'city' town. But this school is the best with education. The teachers are wonderful!

Bow school systems have much to work on. The middle school is over 40 years old and desperately needs repairs. The eighth grade wing is a shambles with leaky ceilings and no air conditioning. The arts are a joke. You get only 22 days of music, art, and Gym per year. The band room is tiny and the chorus teacher can't control her students. The arts are poorly funded while much of the money goes to sports and their related activities. Many of the Drama department's propers were damaged in a storage room leak. The students are extremely physical and dress ridiculously scantily. Rules are slack. This school is pretty much a disgrace and needs to be put into better shape immediately. As a student, I'm grateful to be leaving this year.

The teachers in Bow not only provide an excellent learnng curiculum, they provide an interesting environment for students to discover the love of learning. The extracurriculur activities provide a safe environment for productive and creative pursuits after school.

Bow Schools are the next best thing to a Private School. Although they do not supply anything for the children, it is all out of pocket, their educations have been excellent.
