Bluffton was a great and safe place for students. Throughout my 12 years there, I felt that the teachers and staff always put the students first in order for us to be successful.
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.
