I’ll be graduating this June and I can say that I’m so glad I went BVHS. It’s bar the best school in the district. I’m in the IB program so the rigor stood out to me to most. It’s a school that offers its students what they like. Whether it’s sports, or theater, choir, speech and debate, mock trial; they breed students for success. Two of my friends will be going to Harvard and MIT in the fall and it’s because of the opportunities they found here.
Its a shame that this day and age that racial injustice is still being tolerated and accepted! How successful can a student be in this type of learning environment?
Football coach allows quite a bit of bullying among those that love the Sport and want to learn by the ones that are a lot more experienced. Principal and vice-principal seem to always and inly support the teachers but disregard the students. Cell phone use dyring class is out of control. Communication between divorced parents is not existant, they just pick one and disregard the other 100% of the time. I do aknowledge that teens can be very challenging and disruptive, but I don't feel that they have the counseling, safety measures, etc in practice or if you ask for help is pretty much a waste of time. Coming from the SDUSD I Really thought this school will be way better in quality, safety, care, support, etc I have now sadly discovered it is way worst. This school only. I remember Sunnyside was so much better back on 1996.
Bonita High offers a good education for the high functioning student. I do believe that additional support should be offered, but budgets are low. They have come under fire recently due to the lack of credible sports programs. While their golf team is amongst the best, and the GIRLS basketball team is coached by knowledgeable mentors, the BOYS basketball program is the worst. The Freshman coach is knowledgeable as is the assistant JV coach, but the other coaches unfortunately show no credible ability to lead these talented young men. The volleyball coaching staff is knowledgeable. The football team walked out on the program due to the coaching staff. While the focus on high school should be academics, it does help young men and women when they are mentored by coaches whose knowledge and ability they respect.
