Buhach Colony High School Reviews

The high school has a new engineering program that helps students interested in a career and/or further education in engineering an opportunity to take classes that are geared toward engineering. For example, in the geometry/engineering class the students learn geometry as it would be applied to engineering! I’m loving the new program!

I feel that Buhach Colony High School is a great school, and I love the way they have their scheduals for the classes. My son graduated in june of 2009. He thrived at this school because he was not a huge fan of going to school and if he had to go to a school with six periods it would of been a fight all four years. I now have a daughter entering your school in this year. She is a different kid in the sense that she is more outgoing and I feel that she will grow even more with your school. We will miss John Olson, but will give the new principal and staff the same love and respect as well.
