    "Buchanan is half filled with racism and rednecks, the rest is a mix. Students are very cliquey, lots of drama is always happening. People are only mature if you're an honors or a dual-enrollment student. Honors kids can get away with almost anything. This school doesn't care about arts (no funding or theatre) or anything else besides football and baseball. Sport coaches pick favorites (usually the popular kids). The teachers are alright, science teachers are the hardest to get along with. The lockers are small/unusable, unless you're a senior. The school doesn't have air conditioning , but we have iPads (priorities). Sadly, this school is probably the best out of the ones in the Berrien district. I recommend going far away from the Buchanan area. Some decencies here are the lunches (includes fries!), the Buchanan Promise (which is a 10k guarantee for college if living in the district), and dual-enrollment opportunities which allow you to earn an associates degree along with a diploma."

    "My school is great, I get along with everyone and have a strong group of friends. I do not dread going to schools in the morning, I actually kind of look forward to it."

    "The teachers at Buchanan are great, and provide a strong learning experience. My only short comings are that sometimes the classes move too slow to accommodate for everyone."
