Almost every teacher I have encountered at Bluffton High School are very passionate about what they do. They live for the "ah-ha" moment given when a student finally understands the topic. There are several different personalities and teaching styles, but every different style and perspective prepares each student for the outside world. It is impossible to agree or get along with everyone, but even with disagreements the teachers at Bluffton High School give each student the upmost respect.

Bluffton High School has such a family based atmosphere, that makes every student feel at home. The teachers and administration put a lot of effort into making relationships with the students to make them feel comfortable in every aspect. Many of my favorite memories have come from high school, but I wouldn't necessarily say that I would like to experience high school from start to finish again only because I am excited to use what I have learned in the past four years in my daily "adult" life. If I stay in the area after college, I would definitely like to send my future children to Bluffton High School.
There are several clubs and organizations at Bluffton High School; however, the level of commitment given by the band is incredible. I hear them practice every night from my house. They all put in so many hours to improve their skill, and they probably receive the least amount of credit. They practice for 3 hours MINIMUM each day, and ninety percent of the members are excellent students. It seems like they are competing close to every weekend. The Bluffton Bengal Brigade, by far, is the most dedicated to what they do.
