WELCOME BACK SAVAGES!
Dear BBHS Families and Community:
Welcome to Broken Bow High School. We are as excited as ever to begin the 2019-2020 school year. At Broken Bow we have high expectations in the classroom and around the campus. BBHS is focused on providing a superior and safe learning environment for all students through various curricular and extracurricular opportunities. As we begin classes; I want to encourage students to get involved in extracurricular activities. Our focus as educators will continue to be on preparing students for college and careers. Our teachers provide rigorous and relevant content while building strong relationships with the students and families. We have an amazing staff and I am grateful for the commitment, courage, and care that they display. I am honored to work with each of them. As a result of this commitment, the class of 2019 earned $2,186,000 dollars in scholarships and grants to colleges and trade schools, many students joined the United States Armed Forces, and many went immediately to work as prepared American Citizens. I look forward to seeing what the class of 2020 will accomplish.

We begin scholarship planning as soon as students enter the ninth grade. Students are encouraged to begin their list of activities, honors and awards, and community service with their counselors within the first month of school. ACT classes and workshops are offered throughout the year to assist students in raising their test scores. Students are also encouraged by counselors and teachers to complete a rigorous curriculum. At the beginning of their senior year, students are encouraged to enter all information into a computer program for easy access. During senior year, they meet with the counselor monthly for scholarship deadline and paperwork updates. Bulletins are passed out through the English classes. There is a counselor's web page attached to the school web page with scholarship updates. Students are called into the office if the counselor notices that a student qualifies for a scholarship but hasn't completed the application. At the end of the senior year, an awards assembly is held to encourage younger students to begin their scholarship search and reward those senior students for their effort. The local newspaper also publishes the scholarship winners.
