Bowen High School, named after developer James H. Bowen, the "Father of South Chicago," is a new 9th-12th grade high school. We offer an array of Advanced Placement, performing arts, and enrichment courses, including AP Studio Art, AP Calculus, AP Environmental Science, AP English Literature & Composition, dance, show choir, sculpture, ceramics, robotics, and “Cooking is Math!”
We welcome you to our website and know you will find it a useful tool for the benefit of every student within our walls. We are very proud of the accomplishments of our students and staff here at Bowen High School, and we encourage you to visit and see why our students, teachers, and parents make BHS a great place to grow and learn.
During the month of February, we are incorporating African American themes and resources into our lesson plans in honor of “Black History Month.”
We thank Coach Wilson, Matthew Hampton, and their entire team for hosting a phenomenal middle-school wrestling tournament on February 1. There were more than 100 wrestlers present! Coach Wilson thanks Jacqueline Harvey, Bertha Nordengreen, Tabatha Mixon, and Willa Hawkins for their help that day.
If you have ideas, announcements, quotes, or shout-outs you’d like included in the Boilermaker Bulletin, please, send them my way!
