From the principal

Q. What are your goals for the school year?

A. Our primary goal is to maintain the current environment and attitude for academic excellence and performance that have been established at our school. This includes all students being academically successful in their courses and on their assessments.

Q. What will help ensure a successful school year?

A. We will be successful if we have the understanding and commitment of Boonsboro High School faculty, students and community to maintain high standards and expectations for academic effort and performance.

Q. Can students and staff expect any changes this school year?

A. We will have new personnel in positions such as assistant principal, student achievement specialists, media and technology, and teachers in English, mathematics and special education. We also will be offering the new Foundations of Technology course as a Maryland graduation requirement.

Q. What message would you like to send as the school year begins?

A. From the Maryland State High School Assessment (HSA), federal No Child Left Behind and Maryland School Assessments (MSA), to nationwide academic "yardstick" measurements of PSAT, SAT and AP (Advanced Placement) examinations, our students have demonstrated academic performances and successes typical of a "World Class" school.

These academic efforts coupled with continued outstanding data documented in increased attendance and graduation rates, and reduced student dropouts and suspensions, define the attitude, expectations and achievements of our students and school community.

As we continue to grow in student enrollment, we must maintain and improve these performances.
