Butler County High is jus a small farm town school. We’re kinda like the runt of the litter when it comes to surrounding schools. It hasn’t been a bad experience here, it’s jus what I would call average

The teachers at Butler County High School are actually pretty great! The try to incorporate engaging practices to help with some of the material that is a little dry. Most of my teachers try to go above and beyond to ensure that I understand the material and frequently are available for one-on-one tutoring during bear time (one period that is free). I really feel that if Butler County High school had more financial help and resources for the kids then it would be a Grade A school. I am proud to be a Butler County Bear!
As a recent graduate from BCHS, I can say that it was a decent school. I do not think I was very well prepared for college when I graduated, but my guidance counselors gave me plenty of opportunity for financial preparation. I learned what was required and earned my degree. There are not many options for classes or newer equipment since it is a small town with little funding.
