Going into my third year at this high school, I have had a very good experience overall. For example, the guidance counselors really try to make sure that you get every class that you wanted. This school also has a lot of different clubs and sports, such as softball, basketball, archery, esports club, student council, anime club, choir, band, FFA, FBLA, FCLA, HOSA, and much more! This high school is also known for the sport coaches, who push us athletes to ensure that we get better every day. I highly recommend this school to anyone near Buckeye!

My experience at Buckeye Union High School has actually been quite great! I now a senior, and I am getting ready to head off to college. The counselors have helped me get to where I am now. Ever since freshman year, I have been involved in sports and clubs: cross country, soccer, track, tennis, National Honor Society, and the International Baccalaureate Program. I have had many great opportunities in regards to furthering my education here at this school. Many of the teachers are very helpful and cooperative when aiding students in heading in the right direction of a better future. Buckeye Union High School offers a variety different classes of different interests including several hand-on CTE courses. In addition, safety at this school has never been an issue; I feel comfortable and very safe at all times. Ultimately, Buckeye Union High School is a very fun place with great education, great teachers, and great environment!
My experience at Buckeye Union High School has had its ups and downs but the majority has been ok. There aren’t many fights at the school and it’s really peaceful. I don’t like that the food has been mainly the same since I’ve arrived there and they don’t have many snack choices. The teachers are nice and care about us but my school doesn’t have a lot of money to cover the costs of a lot of things which makes the teachers have to improvise most of the time. The resources at my school aren’t what I would like it to be because they don’t offer many scholarships because my school is in the middle of no where so most colleges overlook us. I also don’t feel like this school really prepares us for college like they should. For example, I feel as though the work load isn’t heavy or even close to what other schools, such as the ones my friends attend and sometimes that worries me that I won’t be prepared for college or that college would feel like an overload.
