Butler High School is a small, inoffensive school nestled in the hills of North Jersey and cradled by the Pequannock River. Its students are just trying to get by, and the teachers range between quirky, apathetic, or just simply sociopathic. The buildings themselves that make up the campus are old and slightly deteriorated, and no air conditioning exists in most rooms. The administration tries its best, but is simply too incompetent to perform well most of the time. Since Butler is a lower income area than the rest of the county, many students are rather prone to disruptive behavior and bullying, which the faculty takes an unfortunately lax stance on. Academically the school is nothing special, and manages to almost competently teach its students.

Butler is a small high school with less than 600 students. Our class sizes are small so teachers get to know you personally. You also have the opportunity to participate in many clubs and other activities. The workload can be a lot, but I have learned much during my time at Butler High School.
Meh, It's mot the greatest, many of my friends are not even going to Butler High School and this is because it doesn't have enough sports, the education isn't great, the food is bad, and most of my friends think that the school sucks.
