Students and staff are very friendly! Close-knit community. Good educators who care about there students. Small school, small population.
Very few negative things to be said. Although the teachers do their best, BHS seems to be last to receive findings from the county. No AP classes are offered at this time unless taken online.

Buffalo High School is an amazing school with an close community. Buffalo is a very small school with just under 400 kids but that makes us all the closer. With amazing teachers who gives us all the attention we need to succeed in high school and in college buffalo is a spectacular school, that i'm proud to go to. I have made great friendships that i know will last a lifetime which i'm very grateful for. At buffalo we all have each others backs and want all of our peers to succeed along beside of us. I know Buffalo High School is one of the best schools in the state and i would go even as far as to say in the nation.
I've had a great experience at BHS in Buffalo, WV. The school had several clubs/activities to participate in. I really enjoyed working with the teachers who were very helpful.
