    I am currently going to Borden Highschool. I absolutely love it here. From the good environment outside the school to the school itself. The teacher truly do try to help if a student show any problems. The only time a student fails is because they don't want to try. The bullying policy is amazing they take care of it as soon as the student shows a need for help. They make me feel safe as a student in the school knowing that they care an go out they're way to help me when it's needed. They challenge me academically unlike other schools. The teachers choose not to let me slack off they chose to push me to be my best. They encourage courses for the students choice of future.

    I think the school is great. I grew up in Louisville and considering what it is like there come on Borden is just awesome. Maybe if more parents raised their kids and didn't depend on the teachers to do it there would be a lot less problems. I work F/T and you can still make sure you are the parent. If the teachers were allowed to just teach instead of adding every great thing there is to help the kids the kids would probably learn more. If you think there is poor discipline blame that on the jury that allowed the parents to sue a school for discipline. The school can't do much and the kids know it. Great job to all of the teachers principals and everyone at both the HS and Elem. You get my thumbs up

    I personally love this school because it has a better teacher student ratio than most schools in Southern Indiana. It also has a good academic program. -Lizzie Borden
