Poston Butte is the only high school in the area that I would recommend to anyone. We have a growing number of advanced placement courses in many subjects, and amazing options for electives. Many schools offer little to no support for the performing arts, which I am a part of, but Poston Butte, especially this year, ahs shown so much encouragement and interest in what we are about. Performing Arts are very important to a great number of students and for some are the only reason they want to come to school and try hard at what they do here. Poston Butte has changed my life. We are a family and we stick together.
My daughter was so worried about going to Poston Butte this year as a freshman because of the rumors she had heard last year. Those rumors are clearly not true anymore because of Dr. Richard and the great teaching staff. My daughter has felt welcomed ever since freshmen orientation.
WOW! That is all I can really say! I never thought that a simple change in leadership could make SUCH a huge difference. Our new Principal, Dr. Richard, and his entire administration, they are amazing! The school is fun now, and safe, and everyone is passing and things are so much more positive than last year. Just check out the website, the facebook page, the school twitter and the "Untamed Entertainment" youtube page and see for yourself all of the awesome!
Our new Principal, Dr. Richard, is quickly making a HUGE difference. He also hired some great new assistant principals, the whole culture on campus has changed to a very positive one. I and all my friends love coming to school now. Dr. Richard is always around and available and he is very encouraging and positive. It is MUCH better than last year!
Lack of administrative support. Common sense is often not used. Complete revamp on how this school is ran is greatly needed. My children as well as other do not like the lunch that is served. More care in this area is needed. Children need food fuel to help be more successful in school. More parents need to be involved. Text books need to be an option for students especially when there are restrictions with the use of the computer. Not all student will follow the rules and alternative measure needs to be implemented. Also, sending students to sweep for not having their ID needs to be readdressed. Like I mentioned earlier the entire school policies needs to be re-vamped.
This school is amazing. My son gets such a great learning experience. There are excellent teachers that stay almost everyday for about two hours just for tutoring. The principal is very nice and a strong leader for this new school. One of my, and sons, favorite aspects of this school, is the growing number of challenging academic programs. I would recommend this school to anyone.
