I went to Bothell High School and it's a pretty decent school as far as secondary education goes. Football and drama are probably the biggest and the best departments at BHS, though I did not participate in either of them. Education quality is solid, not the best, but pretty good. I'd like to shout out that there are some fabulous teachers here, especially in the math, english, and social studies departments, but there are very incompetent ones as well. My one biggest complaint about BHS is the faculty; they are just awful. Many of the women who work in the offices are just straight up rude. The counselors are also very unhelpful and don't really have to listen to what you have to say and only say what THEY think is best for you. It's quite annoying actually when you need guidance for the path you plan to pursue and then have your counselor look down upon you and try to sway you into a better direction. Anyway, I think BHS is a decent school but Inglemoor is better in terms of academics.
