Buffalo High School
I think Buffalo High School offers education that fits each student. I'm happy that my child has had the opprotunity to be a part of the Arts Magnet school. I'm happy that their are expert teachers to provide help. For example, there's a teacher who specialization is working with Autistic children.
I also admire how the student's care for each other is so evident. Examples include the state Basketball champions, when student's have died in car crashes, and New year's Eve party's.
I'm greatful for all the teacher's and administration staff. Thank you for all that you have done, and continue to do.
