Edward Bok Area Vocational Techincal High School was the best class of 1977! The old saying was if you go to Bok you will be okay!

I had the choice of Bodine but I chose this ancient school. Sadly, I haven't been able to graduate from it. I missed out on so much. But for the 2 years that I've attended there, it was the best times of my life. Wonderful teachers, and great friends. There can be some problems here and there, but overall I wouldn't have gone to any other school.

I am an bok alumni (2007)!...Regaurdless to what any one says about bok i loved every moment i spent there. I hate to sound like a mission statement but..Contrary to recent beliefs it may not be the newest or the most popular high school....But if you put forth efforts i can guarantee you will have the time of your life. I didn't appreciate bok when i was there but as of june 18, 2007 i think bok for all there help. I remember each and every teacher i had and every life long friend that i still have to this day! bok is the school my mother, older sister, two younger sisters and i have all spent 4 years. The best part of it all is the similar stories we can share and the different ones we can tell to each other. I <3 edward bok technical!

I am a student at Bok currently, the person who wright about trash in the halls, graffiti on the walls is 100% right! The security team is WAY OVER 'hype' and rude to the students and the admin team has nothing to do with us!, Half of the staff members don't even know who we are!

I visited Bok 2 weeks ago. I don't know where the person who wrote the review in June 2004 went, but it obviously wasn't Bok. There was NO writing on the walls, no trash in the halls. It is obviously an older school, but it is well maintained with the limited amount of money it has.

As you can see from the previous review, the quality of education is something to be desired. The district's little bio on the school in their listing booklet makes the school to be more than it really is. You will find trash in the halls, graffiti on the walls. Teachers are hit and miss, as well as the administration. My advice to south philly parents who are considering this school because of its location and reputation is this: don't believe the hype. If you can send your child to another school that is better but far away, make your child take the commute. It will be more beneficial in the long run, to have a better quality education. Parent participation is extremely low. There are hardly any extra curricular activities outside of sports.
