Buckholts School Reviews

3 reviews
I participate in nearly all extracurricular opportunities that are possible at my school. There are clubs, sports, and other organizations, but there is not many in number. Here is a list of what is provided: volleyball, basketball, football, cross country, baseball, track/field, beta club, Spanish club, FFA, and One Act Play. I have taken part in every one of them. Not many students are willing to contribute or join these activities. The effort of the administration has declined over the past years in that they do not persuade students to partake in the clubs and organizations or carry out proper steps to making the them efficient. Sports is the main opportunity that students and administrators actually put full effort in. I would not say that the clubs and organizations (excluding sports)portion of my school is the strong suit.

The school administration is always helpful and willing to satisfy the students of almost every request. There are a few matters that the Superintendent and principal do not act fairly and reasonably on, but it is not a major issue. The guidance counselor is always kind and eager to help. The rest of the staff is nice to be around and knowledgeable. The dress code is bearable with only a few realistic restrictions. The staff enforces that bullying does not take place. The school is most definitely a safe environment. In some ways, the school is not organized, but overall, the school is a nice place and provides a proper education for all the students.
I have gone to Buckholts I.S.D. since Pre-K, and I am now a senior in high school. I have had many, wonderful experiences take place in this school that would not have been possible in any other. Within all grades, Pre-K through 12th, there are around 180 students, and I know every single one of them. Going to a school within a small community is definitely a blessing in many ways. There are only 17 students in my class which allows me to easily be at the top of my class. I have created so many bonds with the teachers and students. Since there are not many students that attend, sports are available to almost every individual that wishes to take part in it. There are not enough girls in the High School to make a softball team, so I am allowed to be a member of the baseball team. I am a part of the batting line-up and play short stop. I probably would not have had that opportunity anywhere else. On the other hand, with less people, there is less chance of talent. It is difficult having a team that is made up of some athletic individuals and some that have no athletic ability. Also, not many scouts come to check out small schools as often. Therefore, the main reason I would choose another school, if I could start all over, is so I would have more opportunity in sports. Nevertheless, I am proud of how my school has influenced me as a person and student.
