    "My overall experience at Bolton has been truly a roller-coaster. My favorite experiences happened my first few years there when there were better students and teachers and coaches, but everything has completely changed at Bolton. The only unique thing about Bolton is the movie they've been shooting and the history of the actual building. If i could do it all over i probably wouldn't choose Bolton as my first choice for High school. If everything was a good as it was my freshman and sophomore year, yes i would continue on at Bolton, but the way it is now, I'm ready to graduate and never step foot in that school again."

    "A teacher's quality at Bolton really depends on their attitude towards the students and how the students act. Teaching styles vary, but most of them don't like change and like things a certain way (the way they always do it). The teachers are very knowledgeable about what they're teaching, but depending on how the students receive and how they are delivering it, opinions may be different. Some teachers do have interest in their students and build great teacher-student relationships, and some just do their job. Nobody has good communication skills or listening skills at Bolton. I guess you can say they're working on it but.....No. The consistency in grading depends on the teacher you have. Some be on their jobs and others may have you and your parents worried the whole year, and that's a whole lot of trouble. So Bolton is Okay."

    "My teachers are always open to help me when I am struggling and teacher on a higher learning level. They help prepare us for college. My teachers also relate our assignments to real life skills, for example, leadership and conflict resolution skills."

    "I enjoy my school's events. One event I love the most is Chalkfest. I was a group leader in April 2015. My group and I created a beautiful mural and the it brought me joy seeing the end results. Also I found being a leader was rewarding. It is great to participate in a project and finish with a masterpiece."
