"I believe that Bosque is directly responsible for preparing me to attend a top-tier university, for providing me with the skills that have enabled me to do groundbreaking research, and for giving me all the tools I need to succeed in the future."
Marisa Valdez, Class of 2014; BS International Affairs and Mathematics/Computer Science, Lewis & Clark College
“Bosque is so incredible, and the school dramatically shaped who I am; it just felt like another home to me. The teachers really care about their students, and everyone genuinely wants each other to succeed.
Nicholas deGarmo, Class of 2015; BA in English & Minor in Philosophy, University of Minnesota
"The English program at Bosque was foundational to my experience in college and especially influenced my desire to write."
Valerie Jojola Mount, Class of 2009; BA in Evolutionary Anthropology from UNM; Graduate student at Kansas State in the Master of Public Health program, concentrating on infectious diseases
"Bosque is second only to my parents in the formation of my character. It is not an exaggeration to say that I would not be the woman I am today had it not been for this school. Just recently, fellow grad students were astounded when I told them about the JSTOR database. They wanted to know where I learned about it and similar search engines. Proudly, I told them about the thesis projects we completed in high school. Bosque teaches its students how to think critically, analyze, and research—skills that are not universally emphasized in education. We stand apart as graduates of this school in many regards, not the least of which because we are profoundly capable academics and engaged human beings. I am routinely astounded by the accomplishments of those who have attended Bosque because they are not simply brilliant; they are especially compassionate (which, to me, is the true measure of a human)."
Shannon Unser, Class of 2007; BFA in Motion Pictures and Television, Art Institute of San Francisco
“Bosque’s teachers supported our growth and encouraged us to blossom in our own way. The school found the perfect balance of education and extracurricular activities by supporting the arts, sports, community spirit, team bonding, and even trips around the world (Winterim). What other high school does all that while still putting education first?”
Clare Donahue, Class of 2014; BA in Economics with minor in Spanish and Classics, Georgetown University
“Bosque’s environment differs from many schools in that it fosters intellectual growth and discussion in every class, with teachers who are far more than instructors, and peers who are still my closest friends. I have learned to think critically and objectively, and I was thankful for those skills in the college setting.”
Ben Barkoff, Class of 2012; BA in Accounting, Grand Canyon University, Division I soccer athlete; MA in Accounting (in progress)
“Bosque has had an astronomical influence on my life and is the reason I have achieved what I have today. Writing in college was very easy because of the sheer amount of writing we did at Bosque, with the assistance of phenomenal teachers who enabled me to clearly structure my thoughts on paper. One extremely positive moment at Bosque was the day that I completed my senior thesis and presented it at Colloquium. Completing the thesis required so much time, diligence, and effort; seeing it come to fruition was a very rewarding experience as well as a great foundation that I was able to build upon in college.”
Kate Castilleja, Class of 2006; BS & MS in Healthcare Administration from Trinity University
“Bosque taught me that there is always an avenue to explore your interests and create opportunities if you take the initiative. Students at Bosque have access to incredible resources in the school and local community that enable them to create internships and pursue their passions.”
Cooper Tezak, Class of 2017; Arizona State University, Honors College; Chemical Engineering major, Spanish minor
"My math and chemistry classes at Bosque definitely prepared me for college classes. Leading a Service Learning Group gave me a huge insight into how to be a leader. Morning Meetings truly helped create a social awareness that has carried on to college."
