Vandalia-Butler City School District Reviews
I moved to Vandalia from Texas at the start of my senior year. My assigned guidance counselor was welcoming and guided me through not only my academic planning, but also through my trials and errors. While the cleanliness of the school as well as resources of the school were acceptable, the administration's leadership style was disappointing. There is an abundance of discrimination conveyed in the school's handling of violations with favoritism towards athletes and the children of donor's. It is often apparent that the administrators are concerned solely with appearance and not justice. This reality became harshly visible to me as I developed in the school and as my awareness for such behavior was further matured. Through all of this disappointment, however, there are many teachers possessing a strong passion for not only teaching but their students's wellbeing. The kindness of the community as well as the loving teachers made dealing with the behavior of administrators more bearable.
Butler has a lot of great opportunities for children! They hire, for the most part, great teachers that not only care about their subject, but also the children they teach. Butler High School has plenty of opportunities to get involved with sports and club activities. The new principal, Mr. Luebbe, has made things a lot better and he listens to his students and is himself involved in activities! Overall a great school with ample ways to receive education.
Vandalia-Butler is overall a great school to be in. Teachers do not let students fail like in most other schools, they want you to succeed. There is also a nice selection of classes to pick from, although you are severely limited in your Freshman and Sophomore years as to those choices. They offer three foreign languages, although I personally never took any as they were uninteresting. There are many clubs and sports to play, too. There are also very few bullies or rude people in general. The only real negative I can give the school is that class periods continuously begin to drag on for some classes.
