As a former member of this school, I can attest to the severe lack of quality education. In three years, I was challenged in only two classes. The administration is lazy and inept as leaders. The sole reason I have been prepared for college is that I attended a successful 4A high school my freshman year. The students have been conditioned to be spoon fed, and the parents in the community are uncomfortably power hungry within the school system. I've witnessed firsthand the maltreatment of staff and students, alike. If at possible, do not allow your children to suffer in this educational system. It is a waste of tax dollars in a town with no hope.

My child attended Bowie High for two years. We encountered an unresponsive and uninformed administration, poor teaching (movies instead of teaching), low classroom and 'behavior' standards, no serious training in writing/critical thinking, and (with one exception) an unwillingness to work with us in implementing distance-learning courses for subjects not available at the school. We've endured a lengthy and absurd battle to get completed distance-courses from major universities credited on our child's transcript (w/grades of A's and B+). Our child has decided to finish her HS degree at a nearby, much small, district where the learning environment is far better and the level of instruction seems much stronger! If you're moving here, do not despair: there are fine rural districts in this part of Texas. Bowie, in our experience, is not among them.

A marginally basic education can be attained by enrolling in Advanced Placement, while basic courses prepare the students for a future in the world of fast food employment. No fine arts programs, no critical reasoning taught. Preparation for college is not valued, however movies in class in lieu of teaching leads one to believe perhaps the students are being taught if they really study hard they can work at a video rental store.

Small, tight knit school with some issues with students not having things to do in the community. School setting is small and inviting. Administration is good to work with.
