Buckeye Central High School Reviews
Rating 4.2 out of 5 20 reviews
Buckeye Central High School is more than just a school. Here you are connected with your classmates and teachers as if they are all family. I never go a day without feeling cared for and appreciated because of how helpful and amazing all the people here are. Our teachers are always willing to help you accomplish whatever it is that you want to. For example, this year I wanted to start Hometown Hero banners for our community and my teaches never hesitated to let me do it and to help me with it. Even though there is not a lot of diversity in a small town, I would not trade going to Buckeye Central for anything. I have been pushed to grow both academically and as a person each and every day. At all of my basketball games the stands are always full of staff, students, and community members because of the amazing support we have here. I absolutely love Buckeye Central and it will forever have a special place in my heart.
Buckeye Central is a very nice place to go to school. They make you feel safe and accepted no matter who you are. If i would want something to change, I would want them to no let everything be about sports all the time. It seems like you're not much of anything a BC unless you are playing sports and I do not think that is right. I think BC should put more of there money into academics and trying to help students struggling instead of getting everything new for sports when it is not needed. However, even with this opinion of mine, I still believe overall Buckeye Central is a great place to go to school.
Overall, Buckeye Central was a great fit for me. My parents graduated from there, so it's close to home. The small community is one of the things I loved most about it! Everyone knows everyone, and everybody is so supportive. I was big into athletics, and was a 3 sport athlete. The community made my athletic career at Buckeye Central so exciting and fun. We celebrate our accomplishments, and come together in tough times.
It was honestly a pretty good school. A student can easily befriend anyone in the entire school. All students and faculty are kind and is always in a safe environment. This school is more guided towards, people interested in athletics. If a student does not do some sort of athletics at this school it makes it harder for them to make friends.
This school is overly obsessed with athletics and they get special treatment due to it. As a student who only participates in one sport (that doesn't even really matter to this school) I don't approve of it. The school says that they don't tolerate bullying, but I've witnessed literally so much. The teachers and principal is pretty cool though.
Extracurriculars are a must here!
Playing sports is very fun at this school
I loved my experience through BCHS!
I love Buckeye Central! It is full of great teachers that care about students. The education here is great and the student population is great. There is no bullying here and everyone gets along for the most part. I would choose this school if I could do it all over again.
The teachers really care about the students
School lunches are well prepared and served at a reasonable time. The food is good, but gets a little boring sometimes. It is mainly healthy with a little snack.
At Buckeye Central High School, we have an extremely well-rounded administration and easy to follow policies. The principal is involved in school academics, sports, clubs, and organizations. He strives to help out every student to reach their goals throughout high school. Being a senior, I've known this principal for years. He is willing to do anything to make us successful. As he quotes every year, "Graduation day is my favorite day because I get to see all my students accomplish something wonderful." Teachers are involved in everything, from leading clubs, to being the coach of a sports team. Not only that, but they offer students all their attention when in need of help or more learning.
Buckeye Central High School is known for its quality, rather than quantity. The clubs and organizations are small, yet very powerful. Being a part of the Spanish National Honors Society in 2013 through 2014, I became aware of the tight, student bond held at this school. Everyone knows everyone; therefore, we are all capable of helping out the school and community. The administration is fully supportive of all students participating in sports, clubs, and other activities. Some of the administration are leaders of multiple clubs for the students, which makes it easier to do more.
School facilities are average and typical of what you might find at most other high schools. The district built a new K-12 building a few years ago, so the quality and condition of the building and facilities is excellent. The technology is increasing gradually; there are now Smart Boards in almost every classroom and laptops are available in some of the classes. The guidance counselor is always happy and willing to work with students, and college prep resources are bountiful. There is a lot of parent involvement, especially outside of class as athletic or music boosters, and busing is hardly ever an issue.
There is a wide range of extracurricular opportunities available at this school. Sports and similar activities include football, basketball, baseball/softball, volleyball, track and field, cross country, golf, wrestling, bowling, cheerleading, marching band, pep band, and jazz band. Clubs include National Honor Society, FFA, FCA, FCCLA, Art Club, Yearbook Committee, and Student Government, among many. Most students are involved in multiple different clubs and/or sports.
The range of academics offered at this school is pretty wide. There is an option to take certain upper-level classes for college credit (advanced chemistry, advanced writing/speech, algebra 2, trigonometry/calculus), which is an excellent way to begin college as an incoming freshman. The teachers are excellent; they are very knowledgeable about the course material and care about the students' progress. If at any point a single student does not understand a concept, the teacher will stop to help that particular student. The teachers also answer any and all questions asked, and will stay after school to answer questions or go over the material with students. The curriculum is advanced and challenging. The scheduling process is painless and the guidance counselor is always willing to work with students to prepare them for the next step. The workload is generous but manageable, especially with students' involvement in extra-curricular activities, such as sports and clubs.
There is not a lot of ethic/racial/sexually-oriented/religious diversity within this school; with it being located on the outskirts of a small town, the majority of the population is American/white/straight/Catholic. However, that should not place a negative label on the school. Students are very involved, both inside and outside of class. They strive to make good grades and to perform their absolute best while on the field and/or court. There is very little peer pressure and violence, and everybody generally gets along with and accepts each other. The staff and faculty really care about the students and their learning environment and do their best to make sure each and every student graduates with the highest amount of knowledge attainable.
