My time at Buckhorn High School was decent. Personally the school needs to be more diverse and to be able to accommodate to other people's culture. There are many things that go on among the student body that does not get addressed correctly. Overall, most of my time spent there was enjoyable!

Overall a very good experience! The school population is sort of exceeding the size of the school though, class sizes can be large (I’ve heard one class was almost 40 people).
I love my school. I am involved with Athletics and Spanish club. They keep everyone informed on upcoming activities, scholarships, and events. I love the feel of community within my school!
