Assistant Principal/Director of Student Services

"" It’s a great day to be a Liberator!

Bolivar High School is an amazing place to grow together as we prepare students for the postsecondary environment. Students have access to a rigorous education that includes opportunities in over 50 college dual-credit hours. Students can find their place at BHS both in the classroom and in our many extracurricular activities.  We encourage all students to get involved at BHS and strive to learn as much about themselves as they can in their high school years with us.

If you step into our halls, it won’t take you long to see signs that tell you about our expectations of all student and faculty/staff.  We strive to implement “The Bolivar Way” at Bolivar High School on a daily basis: we ask questions, aim for excellence, lift up, lead up, and never give up. By creating a culture of collaboration and support for each other, students are given the tools to realize their own potential and become future-ready leaders and lifelong learners who can make a difference in our community and beyond.
