Butler High School Ratings & Reviews
Faculty and staff are excellent. Plenty of opportunities for students in both academics and after school activities to succeed.
This school has it all, great staff that takes their time to help the students achieve their goals. The academy program really prepare our kids to be respectful. The football is one of the strongest programs around and the academic graduates some of the highest scoring in the state. I love the community feel of BHS.
My overall rating pertains to the general aesthetics of the school and education. The teachers are great and yearn to help if you're struggling and the principal and vice principal are like your pals, that is if you're a good student. But, the school is extremely old; approximately 90 years old, and the art building is about 48 years old. The school desperately needs money to update its appeal to the eye and technology. Although; the cafeteria, photo lab, auditorium(1980s?), physics and science labs have been renovated, the floors are rotting, some hallways are dark and uninviting, and the computers needs updating, along with televisions in each of the classrooms. There are only several communities and newer streets in Butler and Bloomingdale with larger, up-scale homes, otherwise we need grants because the tax money is not enough to keep the high school looking presentable. It should look modern and it needs a second gymnasium; the gym class sizes are too large.
I was going to give BHS 4 stars because the building is very old and can use a facelift, but I reconsidered since this review should be about education. One reviewer commented on the sports field, but since that post, the field and track have been updated and looks very nice. My son is a freshman and I've been pleasantly surprised with how challenging his courses have been. We had been contemplating a private school , but I'm very glad that he chose Butler. He's getting a very good education without the cost of tuition! I like every one of my child's teachers and feel that they are very caring and enjoy teaching. Honors courses are especially challenging. You get what you put into it. Good students and hard workers who take College Prep, Honors and AP courses will get an excellent education at BHS.
Just your average high school. Most teachers do a good job, and yet some don't. We could really use some money for new learning material. The student body isn't that great either. We could really use some shaping up here!
