    "In James Buchanan I sing for the chorus. I love to swim so I am now taking a course where I can teach little kids how to swim! This school is amazing. They have a lot of different things you can do. They have at least 6 different language courses people can take and many more classes. The sports is almost anything you can think of. They have softball which I participate in. They have baseball, football, basketball, tennis, cross country, track and field, soccer, swimming, wrestling, and golf. JB has drama club, band, and much more for kids to do!"

    "I like that our school is a pretty small school. I also like that our school really does not have any issues with bullying. Sure you have something come up every once and awhile, but we really have no major issues with bullying. One thing that I would like to see changed is using more textbooks. Some of our classes we do work online, and some we do book work, but regardless I would like to have a textbook for all of my classes."

    "I've really enjoyed going to this school all 4 years of my high school career. The teacher are all great and really connect with students to make the learning environment more personable. This school offers a good variety of classes available. I really enjoyed my time at JB and would recommend it to anyone considering going here."

    "It was a small school that I rather enjoyed. There were many teachers that I felt connected to, and that prepared me as a student for college. Of course, there are only so many things a teacher can do when they are required to teach certain things but my teachers made them fun, worthwhile, and effective. I felt like I got a very good education while I was there. I was guided and there were plenty of activities that we could join. We dealt with a tragedy, one of our students losing their life in a car crash, and my community banded together. We all felt the loss and in such a small community, we all were there for one another."

    "As a high school senior, I am proud to say that I attended James Buchanan High School. James Buchanan has made some major improvements over the years to keep their students safe and for them to have a comfortable environment to learn and be in, like remodeling our facilities and buildings. The faculty and staff at the school are also incredible. They strive for excellence and push their students to go above and beyond with our education and are always there to help or offer any sort of advice when needed. If there was anything I could change though it would be the way our school sports are ran. There are coaches that favor certain students over others, allowing them more of an advantage when it comes to tryouts and playing time, no matter if one student may qualify for that sport or has the potential to be better or is. This is unfair to those students who do not make the team or get no playing time because they simply do not have the same name as someone else."
