Bowman High School has received the prestigious award three times in the past twelve years. The process to become a Model Continuation School involves a comprehensive written application, which includes over 60 quality indicators, including student achievement data, graduation rates, and supporting statements from staff, students, parents, community members, and business stakeholders. After a rigorous screening of Bowman's application by a panel of experts, a validation site visit by a trained, Model Continuation School Visiting Team occurred.
The results of the Visiting Team's findings published in the Model School Award's program included:
Bowman High School provides a safe haven where everyone is valued and all staff, in partnership with parents and families, is committed to doing whatever it takes for students to achieve academic success.
The principal provides strong leadership and creates a positive climate for students to succeed. Teachers promote high expectations, a strong commitment to student success, the belief that every student can succeed, and a "failure is not an option" instructional system.
Bowman High School is truly an amazing school. From the moment you
Step on to the campus; you can feel the energy, engagement, and student learning.
There is compassion, enthusiasm, and dedication in every classroom, and the commitment to supporting the learning community. Staff makes a difference in the lives of all of their students, and students are sincere in their praise and gratitude of the staff and what Bowman means to them.
