My experience with Buckhorn High School has been great! Every year of being there was filled with fun times and sometimes also hardships, but with the help of classmates, teachers, and staff it was nothing we couldn't overcome. At Buckhorn i have learned and grown at my own speed and now i feel more than prepared to start another chapter at The University of Alabama.

If the students weren't paying attention, then the teachers weren't. I tried my best at Buckhorn, but aside from a few select teachers I had my later years, I was pretty much on my own. The counselors rushed to get us out of their offices, making us feel like we weren't worth their time, and the student body was in constant disarray. Students were disinterested in classes and teachers made little to no effort to improve this. That said, the few teachers that did care did everything they could to make a difference. The biggest issue was that these teachers were few and far between.
Buckhorn was a bigger school with a smaller feel. I was a new kid in 10th grade and everyone else grew up together, some since preschool. Teachers were great about accepting me and helping me adjust after moving. I wasn't involved in sports, but was in choir. I loved the choir program. AP classes were challenging but not impossible. My only complaint would be that I wasn't as prepared for "real world" as I thought I would be. Taxes, job applications, resumes, insurance... A class on these topics and how to handle/ where to find help would be beneficial.
