Bowie High School Ratings & Reviews

September 21, 2017 Submitted by a parent
My 3 older stepchildren graduated from Bowie and I have two kids at Bowie now. Each of them is very different, in academic and social interests, and all of them have found success at Bowie. At first I was nervous about having my kids attend such a large school, but believe me all of my kiddos have been known by their teachers. And there are so many great programs that it really does seem like there is something for every kid. Mine have been super involved with JROTC, theater and debate, art club (my stepdaughter went to Italy with this group!), and cheer. One of my kids has special academic needs and I have been very impressed with the way the school helped him transition from middle school. He is now really pretty self sufficient and as a junior, he has the best grades he has ever earned.

My twins have been very happy with Bowie. They are taking academically challenging classes like AP, pre-AP, and UT OnRamp. As at any large, urban, public school, not everything is perfect. Some teachers are definitely better than others, but if the kid makes some effort to ask about classes and teachers and parents make the same effort by reaching out to other parents and find ways to get involved, your child will likely have a great experience at Bowie.

An amazing high school! Bowie really prepares their students for college - my daughter was accepted into every university she applied to and was also offered scholarships to everyone, UT, NYU, SMU, TCU, BAYOR, BOSTON, EMERSON... At mid-terms, during her Freshman year at UT, while the administration was warning parents about children failing, Bowie kids were sailing through! My daughter graduated with honors from Bowie and just made the Dean's List her first year at UT. As for people saying Bowie is "unwelcoming or unfriendly", they obviously haven't gone up to the school and spoken to the administration and become involved.

The leadership @ Bowie is unfriendly and unwelcoming. Just look at their website to try to find info for the counselors. No phone numbers/emails are listed like they are at other schools. We have been given so much incorrect information from the counselors and have had to do research within the district to find out the correct information. There are great teachers at Bowie, but the leadership and other staff could be friendlier and better informed. Also Bowie uses coaches to teach many fine arts classes and often the coaches are very unfamiliar with the arts they are teaching. They do not know how to pronounce the words that are often derived from French and their English grammar leaves a lot to be desired as well.

For the most part, Bowie is a pretty decent high school. STAFFThe main office staff can be a little snooty but are generally nice. I would've liked for the counsellors and other administrative staff to take a more active approach in helping students with whatever they have questions for or need. ACADEMICSAcademically I've found that AP classes have a great curriculum and dedicated teachers but a very big workload. Which can be very stressful stacked with other AP classes and extracurriculars. With regular classes teachers are more hit or miss. Some care and some don't and some are good teachers and some aren't. For me personally, I felt regular classes were slow even with my weaker subjects, but not worth the added stress of an AP class for a subject I already struggle with. The homework load is definitely smaller and easier at that but expect to have homework everyday for math classes. The gap between regular and AP is frustratingly huge but I think that's generally how it goes for most public high schools. EXTRACURRICULARS Extracurriculars at Bowie are pretty good all around. We have a broad variety of general fine arts and sports to culinary, JROTC, and FFA. The band is top notch. I'm not a band kid, but to be ranked the third best high school band in the US is something to recognize for sure. Everything here (including academics) is super competitive! And there are definitely teacher/coach favorites. But again that's just something you'll come across wherever you go. EVERYTHING ELSECafeteria food is bland, dress code is enforced, and the academics building hallways don't have air conditioning. But don't worry, the classrooms have air conditioning and so does the fine arts building which holds the gym and cafeteria. I haven't really witnessed bullying, but Bowie is a big school and I don't pay attention to everything that happens around here. Most students are generally nice, some can be snobby, but I wouldn't worry too much about bullying. All in all, Bowie is a pretty good school, crowded but good.
