I have been going to CORE Butte Charter High School for four years now. I really enjoy how the teachers are really involved with their students. CORE also is excellent at preparing their students for college. The school is set up pretty much like college. I would definitely recommend CORE to other families! I really have loved my experience with CORE Butte Charter School. If I could personally rate the school it would 10\10.

I've been at CORE for all of high school, and junior high. The teachers are incredible and are always willing to work with you. The atmosphere is, and has been, very welcoming. I have taken many classes since freshman year, and every teacher was wonderful. I thrived in this setting, and would not change it for the world. Overall, I have loved these past few years and feel ready for college!
CORE Butte Charter school has given me many oppurtunites that I would never have had the chance to have at another school. The teachers and staff work very closely with each student, so you definitely have a personalized experience that is different for each person. CORE includes your parents as well, which really helps having that extra involvement and support when leaving school. CORE has specialized clubs and programs to further develop your interests and career goals, which has incredibly helped me on my journey in the medical field. They find what works for you, and make sure it can happen. This school has been wonderful for me, and I would reccommend it to anyone.
