Buford High School was established in 1948 and is home to the Wolves. This school was voted one of America’s Best High Schools in 2010 by Newsweek Magazine, so obviously academics in a top priority on this beautiful campus. This school offers its students the chance to be a part of the school’s amazing Fine Arts program, in which students have the ability to excel in numerous ensembles such as jazz band, musical theatre, visual arts and drama tech. However, for those students who enjoy sweating it out on the field or court, Buford also offers their students many different sports. The Buford athletics department consists of basketball, baseball, football, soccer, cheerleading, lacrosse, track and field and others.
So… Hey, Did You Know… that Buford High School was selected as one of 23 high schools in the state of Georgia to receive the Single Statewide Accountability Silver Award in 2009 for its outstanding student achievements.
