Excellent all around school. Focus on academics with emphasis on personal responsibility. Outstanding staff that really care about the children they lead and teach.

Coming from a small Catholic school, my daughter was extremely hesitant to attend Butler, but we have been very pleased with her education and even the level of caring from most teachers and staff. Even though Butler has so many students, my daughter's teachers and guidance counselor really do get to know her, which came as a surprise to us in such a large school. My other daughter is looking forward to her years at Butler when she graduates grade school.

I am a Butler alum. I left Butler with the skills to get two college degrees, win several awards and move into a government job. Without the discipline, solid education and stellar encouragement I received at Butler - I am not sure any of this would have been possible. Anytime someone mentions that they are considering sending their child to Butler - I am always proud to tell them that I am an alumni and I loved my 4 years there!

I love Butler and am proud to say that my son graduated in 2004 and my daughter will graduate in 2011. Butler is a very well rounded school with a staff that really cares about its students and parents. When I hear about other local schools and the problems they have with thier students and staff, I feel sad for them. I don't understand why every student in Jefferson County doesn't deserve a education in a great school like Butler! Keep up the good work Butler!

I graduated from Butler and loved my time there. I got a great education and received a number of scholarships towards college. Yes, they have some strict rules but if you can get over that and focus on the quality education - your student will be a better person because of it. I would recommend this school to aynone!

My daughter graduated from BTHS in 2007. She attended a Catholic grade school and the transition to Butler was seamless. I credit the staff at Butler with setting rules and expectations that are often not found in a public school. Butler has a very high level of parent participation which is uncommon in public schools. She was also very involved in sports. She has moved on to college and is very capable of handling college courses because of the academic preparation and study habits provided by Butler. She chose this school over the Catholic High Schools we visited and I feel it was a good fit for her. She was a NHS & BRTA Club member and thrived in all aspects of academic & sports environments.

I was a student at bths and graduated in 2005 from there, I find that most of the upper level staff makes bad choices in the rules they choose to enforce. They have very unfair rules when it comes to the male vs female rules. I also feel that it was a complete waste of my time to even attend this school. I have moved on to be a very sucessful at Computer/IT Job and will never look back. I sugguest you think about the amount of grants your child well receive if they go to a school with less competition that way they well be able to afford college.

Butler is a god school overall but is slowly going down the drain. Most students choose to exit the school due to the extra-strict rules which are inforced. Teachers within the school are fairly decent but problems are arroused here and there. It does look good to graduate with a Diploma from Butler Traditional High School but it's harder than most think. The Principle has allowed to much slack over the past years since taking up for Mr. Frick who made Butler what it is today. I would heavily re-consider before truely applying for Butler.

BTHS is a great school and reaches out to so many families and just gives you more than what is required. When a college see's you have a diploma from Butler it means something. It means you graduated from the Top Elite of schools in The United States. Butler teaches the youth of Louisville strict policies and how life will be after you graduate. It totally prepares you for College and guarantee's you a trip to the next level of life. Butler has great athletics as well; a Champion Baseball Program, Fearless Football Program, and Top Ranked Girls Soccer! Butler would/should be the first choice to send your child to school for High School.

I attended here my freshman year and loved it! I loved the atmosphere and the teachers were wonderful. If I was ever having trouble in a situation then there was always someone there to help me! The clubs and extracurricular activities were excellent they had a wide selection of thing to choose from. I loved it, but had to move to Mississippi.
