Would you recommend attending Butler Area Senior High School if you had the choice? Why or why not?


Anonymous, Student, Butler Area Senior High School, Class of 2016

If you had a tour of Butler, you would see the most common high school things. Old lockers, kids late for class, that way too clingy of a couple, immature lower classmen, etc. Yes, like every high school out there, there will always be groups. Groups of students that refuse to socialize outside of their groups. Now it may sound like noting will ever change this, these groups and student rivalries will always be there until graduation. But something's can surprise you. I know I was surprised to find people who hang out in completely different groups, comfort each other after the lose of our fellow classmate. Our classmate was killed in a car crash October 17, 2015. Never in my life could I imagine the halls dead silent the following days of his death. Nor would I imagine waiting three and half hours to pay my respects because most o our school showed up with their families. I never imagined someone I went to elementary school with was the one reason our school came together. During the time Butler was mourning, I saw unlikely friendships, teachers offering to be the friend you needed, and even our principal breaking down over the morning announcements. So when you ask if I would recommend Butler, I would have to say yes. Yes, even though you will not be able to see how great of a school it as first. But after a while, you will be able to see those friendships and relationships that holds our typical school together. Rest in Peace E.
