Welcome Message:

Hello parents, faculty, and staff of the West Bolivar Consolidates School District. I would like to thank you for your continued support of our students at West Bolivar High School. The West Bolivar High staff has very high expectations for this school year and our students. We are working diligently to prepare our students to become productive citizens with quality, bell to bell instruction. Our mission is, "Working together as a team to provide students with a quality education that they can use to become productive citizens.” The goal for the upcoming school year is to make academic progress in all aspects of our school. We are pushing to have at least 60% of our students proficient in Algebra 1 and English 2 in addition to having a 75% passing rate. In US History, we are pushing for 66% proficiency and 86% passing. In Biology, we are pushing for 63% passing and 50% proficiency. This work can’t be done without help from all the stakeholders of West Bolivar High, and we are asking for your help. This can become one of the best schools in the state with the potential of our students. Please continue to support our school academically by insisting that students work hard at home to get prepared for the next day. Finally, our goal is to have 98% attendance this year. Students must be at school all day every day. Please refer back to the district’s policy as far as checking students out and students missing days from school. Thank you for all of your support for a great school year and remember, “We work best when we work together!!!!!” #TEAMEAGLE

Instructional Programs:

West Bolivar High is working hard to become an academically superior school. Some instructional programs include 8th period remediation, Classworks, USA Test Prep, and STAR Reading to improve our students reading and math scores. Our goal is to get all students on grade level in math and reading so that they can be successful on state tests and prepping for the ACT. Our school also has ACT prep I/II for our students to receive preparation to be successful on the ACT. After school tutorial will start soon for the bottom 25% of our students so that they can show growth after this year’s testing cycle.
