Butler is not your average High school. Everyday at Butler feels like a new adventure. There’s always something exciting and new going on. Although i only had 1 full year there, I would recommend it to anyone craving the High School experience.
Butler did become my home. My sister was a butler graduate as well as my mother, so i felt it was only right to continue the tradition. Butler does a great job with making students feel safe and at home. The teachers and other staff become like family, and there are plenty of groups/organizations to be apart of. The average test scores are also high as well as a low behavior rate.
My experience at Butler has been very good so far. I was there for a little less than a year before Covid hit in March of 2020, but I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. My teachers were great, especially my civics teacher. I looked forward to going to their classes everyday. The community is really great there as well. With NTI, it has been a little rough, but I am looking forward to going back soon. It has definitely been one of my favorite schools throughout my school career.
Butler HS provided me with the opportunity to learn in an environment that catered to my specific learning style. The teachers were willing to go above and beyond to assist me both academically and with other issues that arose during my time at the school.
As the years progressed I’ve seen the good and bad within my school. I just wish it was a universal experience for the students to be cared for. If you weren’t close with a teacher or admin you get no leeway. I would choose a different school if I could do it over again. It was ok but nothing was amazing and made me want to stay.
I liked attending Butler High School during my four years. I would honestly prefer more safety regulations.
It is a good school, sports are good, and education is good. Great teachers work here and it is a safe place.
I liked high school and the people I was around. After a few years the events just got repetitive and they were getting boring, they had nothing to make it more interactive. Very good school just wish I could’ve finished my senior year like everyone else did before and have the rush of emotions as I crossed the stage
It’s was okay. I didn’t get a lot of help from my counselor when I was applying and getting accepted from colleges, if I did need to speak with her I would babe to wait a few days.
Butler kept me prepared. Always came to school ready to learn. Lots of teachers out there willing to help. Everyone is resourceful. Teachers actually want to help lift us.
I like the curriculum and courses and the cultural diversity and leadership as far as communicating with the students . No negative comments
My overall experience was amazing, Butler taught me a lot throughout my four years of attending the school. It taught me, don't take life for granted. You only get one life and you cherish every moment that comes your way. High School should be taken serious. It matters how you put yourself out there. Butler got me ready for the real world, especially junior year. We took so many tests, just to get your ready for college bound and what comes with that. In college, that's what you basically do in college. You write papers and take exams for class. Also, Butler environment was just great to be a part of. Everyone was getting along when there was no trouble. We was able to just be ourselves and have fun. I just want to give a special the staff and administration at Butler for everything they are doing for the Seniors. Wouldn't be to move on without them, through this tough time. Butler is a wonderful to go to, just make sure you take care of business while you attend Butler. Thank you!!
I really like that all teachers work with you personally and are always there for support even outside of school.
I've had a good experience at butler. It's a very family-like environment where everyone feels safe and comfortable. Our staff are there for everyone. The teachers really show that they care for their students and they want all of us to succeed.
I’ve been at butler for three years now and I’m glad I switched schools from Ballard. Butler is an amazing school to have a young adult grow up the teachers are so supportive and it’s feels like home .
JCPS has a very small budget and it shows at Butler. When I went here we weren't able to get the textbooks we needed for my Algebra 3 and Dual Credit Political Science class. There were also not a lot of options with AP courses. The student environment is very toxic and it effected my mental health as a teenager.
Overall the teachers truly care for the students and are dedicated in teaching. As a bear I know that hard work pays off. I have asked teachers to write recommendation letters which comes from their own time.
