New Buffalo Senior High School had good facilities for learning. Each student receives a MacBook Air which is used in a majority of the classes. The teachers are prepared for class and teach their topics well. The school will go out of their way in order for a student to pursue courses that they are interested in. The school also has access to college level courses that are offered by local colleges. These courses can either be taken at the high school or the students may commute to the college offering the course. The small school atmosphere allows for you to know everyone in the school and make good, strong relationships with many people.
New Buffalo Senior High School has a very nice facility. The classrooms are super nice, plus they fit well with classes sizes. The teachers here are very eager to help students learn and are willing to help get the resources they need.
