To all of those that complain about the overarching emphasis on sports at such a fine institution, you may need to cite your sources. Buchanan High School is famous for its creation of distinguished, principled leaders in the collegiate community, among notable institutions such as Princeton, UCLA, USC, UPenn, UMichigan, UCB, UCD, UCSD, UCI, Stanford, etc. These institutions are not simply 'good colleges,' as remarked in previous reviews. These are superb, exceptional bastions of intellectual stamina. In my graduating class over 80 individuals went on to these fine institutions, including myself now attending the University of Southern California and applying to the top 20 law schools in the nation. There is no doubt in my mind that my success came in part from this great school, where I learned to excel in academia, athletics, leadership, community service, and citizenship.
