A Message from Our Principal

Dear Bowen High School Families, 

As Bowen High School’s principal, it is my commitment to provide a safe and intellectually challenging environment for our students. Our students inspire me, and I will continue to work along with our dedicated faculty and staff to see that each student maximizes his or her potential.

Our objective is to provide a comprehensive and well-rounded education for all students. We embrace diversity and are pleased to have students of all abilities in our school. We offer a variety of Advanced Placement courses, programs, and sports that challenge our students and allow them to develop physically and gain valuable experience working collaboratively with their peers. We work hard to prepare our students for their world beyond high school.

I look forward to working with the families that trust Bowen High School to educate their students, and our leadership team has an open door policy! Please drop by!
