Boynton Beach High School is a decent school over all and I enjoy attending it. I am in clubs like the Game Club; I stay after for band and I work to help tutor students soon. The school could be cleaned up a lot, but easily with teamwork. There are many fights however and typical high school issues such as bullying, disrespect, and littering. I would like to see the administration hold more assemblies and guest speakers at Boynton Beach to help encourage students to do more to help the community. I see a lot of teamwork in the school sports and the academies at Boynton Beach High. The Dance academy, Theater, IT, and BASA are a few examples of some of the academies the school offers. The food in the cafeteria is average but I would strongly recommend a packed lunch due to the extreme lines for food. You will see a few different types of students. As a result, many students are either bullied or get into fights because of race or backgrounds, as all schools do.

My overall experience was a great experience. This school in general has a bad reputation, but there's nothing wrong with it. This school is very diverse religious, cultural, and ethnic wise. This school is constantly looking for programs to incorporate. The most recent is the Medical program, which I wish I joined because it's a great program. My favorite thing at Boynton High was the dance program. I've been in the dance program since freshman year and through them I've learned so much and made many friends. The dance program helped me break me out of my shell. My favorite part was every year we had a spring dance concert. The preparation and hard work the dancers put in. To the support from the student body, and family and friends. Performing on stage in front of them the feeling was amazing.

More students here are into their extracurrics more than their academics. Students are so into sports here that coaches use their players grades to decide how they're treated in training. You can be kicked off the team if your grades aren't up to par. Clubs are very hard to find however. The most popular clubs are extremely selective and some secretly use favoritism. Some clubs seem to be lost in the system and others just aren't paged attention too because of the people that are in them. Some clubs also represent different organizations that help to feed the poor and give others an education. Overall, club activities and preferences vary.
