Buckhannon Upshur High School Ratings & Reviews

October 02, 2013 Submitted by a student
I really love all of the extracurricular activities at school. Like I am in the FEA (future educators of America) and we just finished teachering students at the local middle school. We have been doing that for the past few days. Also I have a friend in the Fred W Eberle Technical Center nearby studying to be a nurse, and by the time we finish high school she will be a legal nurse. My school helps out a lot with people struggling to graduate like offering credit recovery classes and some summer school options. But it does lack tutoring, it's offered in the morning for math but for the students who don't drive to school and ride the scho buses it is impossible to make it to those. I do like having reward events all the students in the school who met some requirement get rewards occasionally. Also the school pep rally's durning school are always fun.

My school is fine. In the other reviews people said stuff about fighting and a tardy policy. Both of those are not true anymore. There still are fights but a 'fight' lasts like 10 seconds before broken up. There is not a ton of fights and usually they are about couples and their relationships and other stupid things like that. It's a quiet peaceful town with not a lot of violence and crime if u are in the right areas. The westtest2 scores on here are completely irrelevant. The reason the are so bad is because more than half of students don't try on it because it doesn't effect them. All it does is make our school look really bad. We have a pretty nice school building. It's a little old but we just got a new gym floor, library, and they are in the process of redoing the auditorium. Also we have a artificial turf football field, drivers Education course, swimming pool, tennis courts, FFA barn(future Farmer's of America), baseball field, cross country course, rubberized track, and we are very close to Fred Eberly Technical Center which offers a variety of courses that train students in particular skill so the can work straight from high school without college

My school is great for every thing except for preparing for the future. Also since at least half of the students here qualify for free/ reduced lunchs I don't think some people can afford to take tests like the ACT or SAT there used to be GEARUP that payed for some students first time taking the the test but now everyone does it on their own. The counselors here are really a waste of three jobs. They don't help with scholarships, test dates, college tours, college applications, or even emotional situations

I have two students in this school at the moment and have seen the school through both perspectives. There is no help for college prep or discussion with the counselors. They do not help with scholarship info. There is a new policy where students are sent to the auditorium when arriving at school late or tardy for a class. They are to remain there all day, How is this going to educate our kids? My kids are active in sports and have tried to be involved. I would expect more from a school system that is trying to improve drop out rates and test scores.
