Welcome to Buckfield Junior Senior High School!
Did you know?
Holiday Food Drive
Food Drive: Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and there are lots of people who can use some extra help. Starting Monday, November 17, each homeroom of BJSHS will be seeking donations of nonperishable items. The collection period will continue until the start of the Thanksgiving Break (November 25). To encourage participation, there will be a competition between the homerooms, with a winner of each class and an overall winner. If you would like to make a donation, but do not have a student in the school, you can drop off your donation in the main office. Donations will be given to local food banks in the area.
The Buckfield High School Girls’ soccer team has been chosen to receive the Maine Principals’ Association Sportsmanship Award. One more reason to be proud of the students of BJSHS!
