Upper School Student Government
The Bosque Student Government class is in part a student-directed class that is driven by a clear mission statement and bylaws that focus its efforts on supporting the student body and the Bosque community at large. Students will plan, implement, participate in and reflect on school activities and policies as well as make decisions which affect the overall school culture. Students will be given an opportunity to set goals, organize events, debate school policies, manage time and budgets, and problem solve, as well as develop team building skills. In addition, students will have an opportunity to examine our nation’s political structures by studying campaigns, elections, and domestic and foreign policies. The class is designed to help students compare and contrast their involvement with Bosque School policies and culture with that of our city, state and federal governments.

Middle School Student Government
The purpose of Bosque Middle School Student Government is to plan and coordinate a range of student activities (e.g. dances and other social events, fundraisers, community service projects, and school-wide activities). Students learn to communicate and represent student perspectives to the larger Bosque community and instill Bosque School’s core values into the middle school community. Student government provides hands-on leadership opportunities and experiences for middle school students. The Middle School Student Government is inclusive, and supports students in public speaking, organization, and leadership, as well as developing relationships and a willingness to work with both peers and adults.

Bosque School's Model UN
follows the national organization standards. Model UN at Bosque School allows the students to gain knowledge outside the classroom in world politics, diplomacy, and foreign affairs. The Model United Nations experience brings to life the problems that face the real world and allows participants to represent their assigned country's position and work towards resolving issues of global importance.
Model United Nations (MUN) is an educational simulation and academic competition in which students learn about diplomacy, international relations, and the United Nations. MUN involves and teaches research, public speaking, debating, and writing skills, in addition to critical thinking, teamwork, and leadership abilities.
Participants in Model UN conferences, referred to as delegates, are placed in committees and assigned countries, or occasionally other organizations or political figures, to represent. They are presented with their assignments in advance, along with a topic or topics that their committee will discuss. Delegates conduct research before conferences and formulate positions that they will then debate with their fellow delegates in committee.
Bosque will participates in the NM Regional Competition of Science Olympiad held in Albuquerque NM on January 31, 2015, both in Division B 6-9th grade; and Division C 10-12th Grade. The State Competition will be held in Socorro NM on February 21, 2015.
