    the school is great. you get to learn about what collage you would like to visit. some people from the collages come to talk to you about what the school is about. if it want for the school I wouldn't be going to Paul Mitchel to shadow on Tuesday. this will give me the opportunity to see if i really like cosmetology .

    Capital High is the best! The teachers are amazing and are dedicated to helping all of the students in any way they can. Capital has great variety. There are many AP classes that arent offered at other Boise schools and there are so many clubs and sports to join everyone can find their niche. Our school spirit just cant be rivaled we all take great pride in being Eagles. Plus students are so friendly and nice that it all adds up to a great place to go to school.
