Buffalo is a dedicated school with an amazing staff! We were voted one of the top high schools in the United States, and it's easy to see why. With the amazing teachers, the dedicated office, and the proper allocation of student resources, Buffalo puts many fellow schools to shame! While our football team has been poor the last few years, new coaches and equipment are sure to turn this around. However, Buffalo has other areas of athletic pride: Wrestling, Speech & Debate, and Track. With our wrestlers having won the COC, our Speechies holding high ranks within the nation, and our track runners being state competitors, Buffalo blows various other schools out of the water.

Buffalo High School was not always like it is now. It may be small, but in reality it is comfortable. I have moved to this school my sophomore year and had never met so much diversity and such a loving group of students and staff in the school. It was really easy to get plugged into the community just by being attending Buffalo High School. There have been new programs coming out getting people to engage inside and outside of school. Unlike stereotypical views on public schools, our school embraces sports and the arts. Our staff and department enjoy every aspect of our school's activities. I'm so thankful to have moved and become involved in a lot of groups because my last school hardly had anything. This school really aims to get people ready for their future - work-bound, college-bound, or travelling bound. It's been a big blessing.
Buffalo High School is a fairly average high school. It's clear the school doesn't have a large budget, but it has enough money to keep the building and the facilities in good shape. The security is impressive; we haven't had any incidents with weapons smuggled into the building or the like. There are occasions of fist-fighting, but those are quickly broken apart by faculty. The food is subpar; it's what you would expect to find at a school --bland, but always made up to health standards. If there was one thing that I could change, I would add soccer as an available sport.
