My child attends this school and is thriving. I do wish there were more opportunities for leadership but she is taking charge of her own education and performing at a high level.

My daughters both got great college scholarships after a strong academic career. The school is friendly and and not as clique-y as other high schools. We love Borah and look forward to their little sister attending someday.

I attended Borah for all 3yrs of high school. I will say up front that I was not the best student, nor did I apply myself like I should have. That being said, most of the teachers were great. An Econ teacher that does not work there any more (I know this because I went to Borah during their lunch to talk to some old teachers) went above and beyond on a daily basis. Even when trying to slack off in some classes the instructors pushed for me to do my best regardless. Of course there were some that had the mindset of well if you dont want to do the work then dont and you can fail. The counselor I had is also a coach, he was probably the most important person in getting me into the right schedule to graduate. I did not partake in extra-curriculars as I felt that the sports there did have their own favorites. If you had the right background or name, you would play regardless of poor performance. There is quite a bit of diversity in this school, there are alot of refugees, African, Iranian/Iraqi/Bosnian etc. Mostly there were hispanic and African American students among the minority. If you push your kid at home too, they have all the tools to succeed at this school. Do extracurriculars!
