Over the course of the four years that I spend at Butler high, I can say that they were full of many interesting moments. This school had many great qualities but just as it had its good it also had many bad qualities. many of the school's clubs and activities were great and encouraged the students to join and be part of something. The teachers from the school really did come in all kinds of styles and forms of teaching. The school also has a great variety of people and types of backgrounds. The school itself isn't in the best of shapes which lead to many problems over the years, such as really hot classrooms to whole floors having to be closed off due to some type of structural problem. the administration wasn't the best either due to their lack of openness to what the student body felt should get done. The experience in the school is truly one in a million but I cannot say that I would have traded it for anything else in the world.
Butler is a small school which allowed me to participate in many activities and clubs. I enjoyed the small class sizes and getting individualized assistance when needed. For the most part, the community at Butler is very accepting and inclusive. I feel BHS has done a good job of teaching respect of others and teaching acceptance.
