Bolton High School: When I left for college, Bolt…

Bolton High School:

When I left for college, Bolton High School had an enrollment comparable to ASH– 1,100 or so students. Today, the Town Talk reported about how local schools are coping with population INCREASES.

Five years ago, Bolton was one of the state’s academic powerhouses, and perhaps it’s still attracting top-notch students because of its gifted program (and then likely losing some of them to the Louisiana School).

Today, the Town Talk reported that Bolton has an enrollment of 603 students. 603!

I have a few questions:

What happened?

I’ve heard Bolton was seventh in the state in ACT scores just a few years ago. What is it now?

Who is Bolton’s principal and what are his/her qualifications/academic agenda?

How does the School Board plan on turning Bolton around?
