I love this school so much! I`ve been there since Pre-K! All of the teachers are so amazing to all the students there, all of them give one on one attention with any student that asks for it, or just senses they need help. It`s really nice being able to be friendly with the teachers and have making jokes with them, but knowing when to stop joking and learn. There`s people that have struggles in school and the teachers make sure to get them what they need, but also treat the others students equally. Personally, I`ve always struggled with math. But I didn`t necessarily need "special help", but they knew when to help me and when to let me do it by myself. The academic abilities on our school, I think are above average because of the attention we get from the teachers. There is a variety of extra activities for all people`s personalities and abilities. This school doesn`t only feel like a high-spirited environment, it feels like a family.

This school is way above the district that surround them. The education is far superior to that of North Warren or Warrensburg. Teachers care and take the time to help students. Its a joy to see staff that like their jobs and children. KUDOS to all at Bolton Central School

Academics are low. Students receive grades that are not earned. A good percent go to college and leave within the first semester. Parents are afraid to complain due to retribution on their student (Which most BOE people are well aware of and proclaim it doesn't happen) Nice sports program any student that wants to play can. Parents are involved but afraid as are the teacher (THE PRESENT SUPERINTENDENT HAS CUT THEIR JOBS/POSITIONS BECAUSE THEY DO NOT AGREE WITH HIS VIEWS) This superintendent knows someone in NYS Dept of Education. Bolton has NO K-6 special education teacher He cut that position too. NYS Dept of Education WHERE ARE YOU?
