    Overall Experience: A lot of things at this school needs to be changed. They treat the children by how popular they are and it is very unfair.

    Overall Experience: One thing i loved about being a Buckhorn buck was the involvement of my soccer coach in my classes. He would always ask my teachers how I am doing in class and what i need to improve on. He was a great help in my success.
