They can not say that we cheating because we are not the only school that pass the TAKS. Why are we the only school that every time they say Bowie did this, Bowie does that? They always have something bad to say about Bowie. But never anything about other schools that maybe actually be cheating.

Why does every person think that Bowie can be cheating? That's why they came in and see that we are not CHEATING.. why every time is BOWIE...why? But they don not know, or are able to accept, that Bowie can be better than other schools.

I think that Bowie High School is progressing by now, because the students are being more respectful with each other. I don't think the students were cheating. I think Shapleigh is wrong about what he is saying about Bowie. He has to be more focused on his things than our school. If he doesn't know the things perfectly about what is happening at Bowie, then he didn't have to talk about it. Just because the students have good scores on the TAKS, that doesn't mean the students were cheating.

Don't hate just because there's more people getting better grade's, because there are more people that want to be something in life and not being in evryones mouth saying
"Bowie has the most drop out's". people who want a better future, no we did not cheat as people were told by the ones who want Bowie closed.

Shapleigh should shut up he needs to stop talkin bad about Bowie. He should be happy because Bowie is improving and Bowie is rated recognized. We work very hard to get good scores in the TAKS test. He has no idea of the hard work we do every day , he should not talk if he doesn't know if he is right or not . If Emy Johnson already said that there is no indication that students were prevented from taking the TAKS then why did he file an appeal???Shapleigh should think before he speaks. We don't cheat it's just that Shapleigh can't admit that Bowie is getting better and better every year. >:(

People said we the students at bowie cheated at the TAKS but what people do not know is that we the students along with the teachers help work as hard as any student from any school. Just because we have a low income does not mean we are a bad or corrupt or can't learn. There are many things we do as a team and as a family with hard work and effort. If there could only be a way to demonstrate that they are wrong we would do it, because our scores don't seem to be enough. It does not matter what we would do as long as it would stop people that like to talk horrible things just to make someone look bad because they can't accept we can be better than them. What's the point the only thing they are doing is letting everyone know they are poisonous snakes looking for a victim to kill. GET A LIFE AND LIVE IT! JUST ACCEPT IT GET IT OVER WITH WE CAN BE BETTER THAN ANYONE. THIS IS NOT ALL WE CAN GIVE.

I cant believe that someone said that things about Bowie because Bowie is the only school that help spanish speaking students to talk English. Fist, nobody can say that we cheat in TAKS, we do the best in that test. You are all heaters about Bowie. BOWIE HIGH SCHOOL IS THE BEST...

I think that all this,is one problem very big, because all the student have rigths the not prohibit if are mexican or america,in addition they not need make cheat to pass the TAKS, with you proper knowledge is more than enough.Also i think that the person Shapleigh,is one person no very naice, because is very hard of treat.
