I think Bosque is a great school, although the stress levels are high and the expectations are great. High stress levels and expectations prepare people for later life which is one of the things Bosque is great at. The school does not have many sports teams, but they are expanding. Bosque is a great school with a great atmosphere.

I did extensive research on all public and private schools in Albuqueruque prior to enrolling my child in 6th grade. I have absolutely no regrets. This is an outstanding school in all areas, academic, athletics, art, public service, administration and teaching. This school is amazing.

A nurturing school that focuses not only in developing kids for college but also for life. Great academic standards, great science program using their environment effectively, rapidly developing range of sports, wonderful arts programs. One of the greatest value elements is the size of the school. - around 500 students. The size allows the school teachers and staff to know almost all the students well, and the students and parents to know each other- leads to a very strong sense of community and responsibility for ones own actions and contributions within the community. My daughter has blossomed during her two years at Bosque.

this school is for the academic elite. The pressure and stress levels are high. The expectation is great, and at times to much. There is a lot of parent involvement, but there aren't many extracurricular activities. Not a very sports orriented school, this school is for the asspiring english or liberal arts major.

The teachers are very attentive and caring. This school listens to the parents! The academic pressure is high and the standards are high. We really liked the college atmosphere and even got used to the strange class schedule.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
