I have had an outstanding experience with Buckhorn High School because the teachers there care about the students and their understanding of the material. Also, the academic material is amazing because it is rigorous, but easy to understand. The school provides various after-school programs that help students gain service hours or expand their knowledge in the arts and sciences. I have enjoyed that the school puts college readiness at its forefront. The college preparatory classes have put my mind at ease about the transition to college by allowing me to have a sense of what I will be learning in college. One thing I wish that I could change about my high school would be the food quality. I say this because the food there contains a lot of fat and the fruits and vegetables are not usually fresh at all. Overall, I have had an amazing experience at Buckhorn High School due to the great teachers and the multitudes of resources available to me.
Review Buckhorn High School
Overall I've had a great experience in high school. The administration can become unfair to the student body as far as not demonstrating fair punishment for a whole class. However, there are some AMAZING teachers at Buckhorn and nearly everyone is understanding and willing to help whenever you need them. Great student body and great sports
Buckhorn is overall a great school to attend. While all schools have their pros and cons, Buckhorn handles their issues in a respectful manner and they create an amazing learning environment. Buckhorn is ranked one of the most challenging schools in Alabama along with being known for its high graduation rate and people to attend college. I am glad to be a student at Buckhorn.
