I would like the administration care about the individuality about each student rather than the scores they are able to pull out of the students. I rate this school four stars out of five because it is a very safe school without the restriction of closed campus. The school has a diverse student population as well as excellent teachers. The school has issues with comparing their students from other school while sacrificing the voices of the students who speak out about the effects on us. The teachers are amazing , kind, and caring. Love the community this school creates and how the people I have met here will be with me for the rest of my life. Much of the campus is being redone such as the football stadium and agriculture which looks really cool. It is a very green campus as opposed to a campus with less greenery. Also really pretty view of the mountains from the back of the school which is just a random plus.

Life at Buena Park High School was second to none for its outstanding clubs. The quad was lively and welcoming to all students interested in: Christian club and Music Club to name a few. These are clubs I joined at because they were welcoming and gave me a sense of belonging. I was happy when I got into the Christian Club because I am Christian and wanted to befriend others. I was fully able to embrace myself in my faith even at school. In Music Club I didn't already know how to play an instrument, so I was a little intimidated, but was invited to play the violin and sing anyway. The people at these schools were very kind and wanted to see me flourish in school while having a place to release my stress. I'm grateful that Buena Park High welcomed exciting clubs for their students because that shows they genuinely consider the needs of their students.
Buena Park High School has a very supportive and diverse community. Teachers and coaches make an effort to motivate and support their students, and the school provides many opportunities for a variety of passions and talents. The high school also offers many academic opportunities such as Early College and many AP courses to allow students to prepare for college.
