Buhl High School Reviews

My experience through my first 3 years of this high school has been okay. Buhl isn’t the best school nor does it have the best teachers, but there are a few great teachers who are dedicated at making sure your learning and understanding the subject. The other students in the school aren’t the best students as some are trouble makers and don’t get decent to good grades in any of their classes, but there are really nice kids at my school once you get to know them. There’s just a lot of drama like most schools anyway. The classes offered are not the best but there are a few good ones such as concert band and jazz band. The teacher who teaches those two classes is very passionate about music and her students and wants all them to succeed while making the class fun for all. There’s also a class that teaches you how to cook and the basics of food which you can take more classes that are more advanced after the intro class.

Buhl High School is a good school. We have some amazing teachers who truly care about the students there. Overall my experience there has been great! The only thing I would change is more pride. I wish our school had more pride. I think I would have had so much more fun during my high school career if there were more kids showing up to events and if there was more cheering and support from my fellow students.
I liked all the teachers at Buhl High School. Most of them seemed to be enthusiastic about helping students grow and learn. They seemed to take academics seriously. They would offer tons of helps to kids that were not doing as well as they could've. The school activities were always fun even though you had to act like they were "boring" or "stupid". We always had drills in order to prepare us for any kind of a disaster. They were extremely helpful during my senior year since I am a first-generation college student. I was clueless about college, but they helped me prepare greatly. However, I think that they should better encourage students to join clubs and teach them the importance of doing extra-curricular activities. They should also improve the food there, but then again, which school doesn’t need to improve their food.
