Attending Butler High School is a fantastic experience. My favorite part about it is the family vibe. The whole district always comes together as one and really supports everyone. We have started an annual district wide pep assembly where every Vandalia district school comes together and celebrates another school year. The teachers are excellent at what they do! They prepare students academically for sure! They know how to challenge students to push further and really go outside the box. We've created many unique clubs so that someone can always be part of something special. In recent years we have also upgraded our safety procedures for students and staff. Including adding special safety security officers in every school. In conclusion attending Butler and Vandalia district schools my whole life have made me who I am today and I am very thankful.
While attending Butler, the school had ongoing major construction and many of the classes were held outside of the main building in portable classrooms. Despite the constant shuffle, staff and students adjusted quite well and all problems were dealt with quickly and efficiently. The Butler Senior Exit Program, or BSEP, was an interesting take on readying students for success. I believe the concept is great but believe partner pairing and content selection could have been executed or assisted more efficiently. Overall, a great place to be with many students with big dreams that hold each other to high but achievable standards.
