My son is in his senior year at Bosco. It was the best decision we ever made. The teachers,the classes, the friends he has made have turned him into an amazing young man. There are endless opportunities in and out of the classroom to show who you are. The priests are dedicated and go above and beyond to teach your son to become a compassionate young man ready to tackle the world after high school.

I absolutely loved my experience at Don Bosco. The overall structure of the environment, as well as the community that it fosters is something that you can't find anywhere else. Additionally, most staff and teachers are helpful and committed to making sure students do well.

The teachers who have been there for years are great and committed to making student-success a priority. However, there has recently been a lot of turnover which has negatively impacted the academics at the school.
