My experience at Butler Traditional High School has ben wonderful! I have been there for four years and I am currently a senior. Butler is so welcoming and overall feels like home. Butler offers a wide variety of sports and clubs to choose from. One club that fascinates me is National Honors Society (NHS). NHS is a program for students with a GPA above 3.5. It helps students make a difference in their community by completing service hours. Butler has great administrators and teachers that are very approachable and kind to all students. In my opinion, Best Buddies is one of the best things about my school. Best Buddies is a program for special-needs students to interact with other students. It is very special to me because forever friends and connections are made with all the special-needs students. I would recommend Butler High School to everyone! I have met so many people and I feel involved at school. Choosing to attend Butler High School was one of the best choices I've ever made.

I like Butler because not only are the students very friendly but, we have teachers and faculty that care about you like you are their own kid. Here at Butler I have met some of the best people including friends and faculty while attending Butler and they have made some of the biggest impacts on my life than anyone will. You can truly tell that the staff wants the best for you. I have learned some of the best things that I never thought I'd end up learning or even like. I feel that Butler was the best choice for me ans helped in many ways that I couldn't even imagine!
Butler is my home away from home! I love the atmosphere there and how welcoming everyone is. I can really be my true self at Butler, all of the staff is extremely supportive and helpful with everything. I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else!
