I Have spent three years of my life at Butte High School. Over these years, I have met several influential people in my life between the wonderful teachers and the various students. The school does need some improvements though. In my school we have problems with students not showing up to school, being involved with substances, and things such as low school spirit. It seems as sports are the only important aspect of our school instead of our education.

Butte High has a wonderful staff that is eager to help you achieve your academic goals. They offer a variety of classes ranging from below basic to college level in difficulty. They also have many facilities for their plethora of clubs, sports and activities.
Butte High School is a very organized school. The teachers are really kind and polite and they care about your grades. If you are struggling they will help you out in any way possible. Some things I would like to change is how our school money is portioned, most of our money that we receive goes to sports.
