    "Teachers at James Buchanan High School do everything they can to make the learning experience great. They truly care about the wishes and needs of the students. They are friendly and understanding of all situations. They give real-world examples to help students understand the material as best as they can. AP teachers do their very best at preparing students for the test. Without my AP Government teacher, I would not have been able to score a 5 on the AP Government exam! The teachers teach in the best interest of the students and are very consistent with their grading."

    "As with every school, students have issues. They are not always handled in the way students may want, but it is always in the best interest of them. The faculty does everything they can do keep the students happy. Students are great, teachers are great. Bullying is hardly an issue here. The school recently received a multi-million dollar renovation, and families all across the district have helped raise money to fund it. There is a non-profit campaign called Fix JB Sports that has gotten us a new football field, a new track, a new gymnasium, new tennis courts, a new pool, and a new beautiful soccer field! Families in the area have truly stepped up to make the school the best it can be. There is no other school I would rather go to. If I could do it all over again, I would not have attended private school for my elementary education. The education at James Buchanan High School is so magnificent, I would rather attend there than pay for private schooling. Overall, James Buchanan is the best school out there, in my opinion. I am proud to be a JB Rocket!"

    "High school had its highs and lows but I've made unforgettable memories with the faculty and students. My favorite part about high school was being involved. I was apart of student government and yearbook. Along with being the volleyball and wresting manger. I always looked forward to school just because of these activities. If I had any advice to a student it would be to get involved. I saw myself grow and enjoy school a lot more than I did before joining these clubs. It gives you something to look forward too. I would never change my experice at James Buchanan because it left me the unforgettable memories to look back on as I get older."
