Lancaster County School District is an amazingplace to go to school. Buford High School is a wonderful school that shapes sound bodies and sound minds for all students who attend. This school encourages creativity and spurs personal growth. Their academics, clubs, organizations, and sports, allow for great opportunities to show school spirit or come together and participate as a community. Buford High School is inclusive and accomadates all students from different walks of life. The administrators, teachers, faculty, and staff all do a great job making school a fun place to learn for all students while keeping them in a safe environment. This school has given me many memories, along with preparation for college and an improved skill set with real life capabilities for a career/job in the work force.

Indian land High is great, however other schools in the district are lacking. The proportion of funding is very uneven as Lancaster high is older and run down and is home to many of the more difficult and delinquent students. One amazing thing about this district however is the chance at wonder duel enrollment programs in which students can complete college courses on USCLs campus while also getting high school credit.
My experience with the Lancaster Couty District has been amazing. I have love everything about this district, Lancaster High School the school I attend now has the best classes and programs that can help you prepare for your career. The teachers are amazing.
