Typical Day at Bolles:
I usually get to school around 7:45 a.m. and go to my locker to change out my books for my first few periods. During zero hour I either go to the library to study or I go talk to a teacher for help on a particular assignment. Once the bell for first period rings at 8:30 a.m., I go to my first period class. Forty-five minutes later I go to second period. After second period, we have a 30 minute break (activities), during which time I go to my locker again and switch out some more books. During activities I normally go to the library and do some homework. After activities, I go to third period and then fourth period. Fifth period is my lunch, so I go to my locker at the beginning of 5th and once again, put the books back that I don't need and get the ones that I do need. After this, I meet my friends in the canteen where we eat lunch. Once I am finished with my lunch, I either go to the library once more to do more work, or I stay and talk to my friends if I got all my work done. After fifth period, I go to sixth and then seventh and eighth. Eighth period ends at 3:45 p.m., which concludes the school day. During soccer and track season, I go straight from eighth period to the locker rooms, and then go to practice. After practice, I go to my locker one last time to get the books needed to complete my homework for that night.
I like Bolles because:
Coming from an international background, I really appreciate the diversity of the student population. However despite this diversity, Bolles has something for everyone and offers an abundance of opportunities for each of its students. For example, all the clubs and activities at Bolles inspire students to participate in lots of different things in order to find what they are truly passionate about. It is because of the numerous opportunities for students to engage themselves in that students are guaranteed to find their own niche in the Bolles community. Another aspect about Bolles that I like is the incredible teaching staff. The faculty at Bolles provides an influential network of support for the students. They are all very eager to help and know exactly how hard to push their students to get the very best out of them. The teachers challenge their students to strive for excellence, and for that I am very grateful.
