Student Life

Boston School of Physical Education health show, 1925.

Students assumed many leadership responsibilities throughout the history of Bouvé. From forming their own government to organizing special activities, they helped to determine the School’s standards and identity. Participating in interschool activities, volunteering at local community centers, and even wearing the school uniform projected a self-assured, amiable attitude for potential students and donors. The collective independence and sense of purpose of the student body crafted Bouvé into an institution that appealed to the brightest young minds in the fields of physical therapy, physical education, and recreation.
