Advanced Placement (AP) participation is consistently high with 62 percent of all AP students and 85 percent of those in AP physics or government earning a three or higher. In addition, 59 percent of the current senior class has taken the SAT, earning a combined score of 1604. Students participate in the Physics and Chemistry Olympics, Poetry Out Loud competitions, world language honor societies, the Academic Team, and "We the People" competitions. They produce musical performances, theatrical productions, and a literary magazine called BLAM (Boonsboro Literary and Arts Magazine) which highlights student artists and authors. Boonsboro is also proud of its 2012 State Championship cross-country team with its overall GPA of 3.71
The Boonsboro High School We the People Team recently competed at the National Competition in Washington D.C. The We the People Competition is part of the AP Government course. The main goal of the competition is to test students' knowledge of the United States Constitution. Students work as a team (in this case the members of their AP Government class) to compete at the district, state, and national levels of the competition. Students are organized into six units and they must prepare four minute speeches in response to a question about the Constitution. At competition, they must give their speech and then be prepared to answer a series of questions from a qualified panel of judges for six minutes. The BHS team is the 4-time Maryland District 6 Champions and the 4-second runner ups at the Maryland State Competition. This year, the second place finish allowed the team to advance to the national competition as the Maryland State Wildcard Team. Congratulations Warriors!
