Butler Traditional High School opened in 1954. It was chosen in 1988 as the second high school in Jefferson County to offer the Traditional Program. In this program the standards of patriotism, morality, and personal integrity are stressed in a structured learning environment. The school has a strict dress code, discipline code, heterogeneous grouping, technology major, and college preparatory curriculum. It is the only school in JCPS to obtain and/or exceed its goal for CATS testing every year during the existence of the yearly examinations.
Another benchmark year to Butler’s history occurred in 1989 when she became the second traditional school in Jefferson County (Male being the first). The school underwent many changes during this time period which phased-in new curriculum requirements and renamed the school to Butler Traditional/Technical High School. Again, an enrollment explosion took place with 1,240 students which included one of the smallest senior classes and one of the largest freshman classes. Uniforms were gradually phased-in along with new academic guidelines. It might be interesting to note that Butler was the first public high school in the nation to require school uniforms. With a new school crest, along with many other changes, a new era had been born.
Butler High School has provided over fifty years of hope and confidence for nearly 20,000 young people of Jefferson County and will continue to do so for many years to come.
Calhoun Construction served as the General Contractor for a complete HVAC upgrade to the facility. Along with HVAC, all windows are being upgraded along with classroom upgrades and site work. This is a 2 year phased project with 5 separate completion dates throughout the project.
