Van Buskirk Elementary School

I am a teacher with 20 years experience. I have taught at 7 schools, and of these 7 Van Buskirk is the school that I would rate the highest. Teachers collaborate, the principal is supportive, and the children are eager to learn. The Opening Minds through the Arts program allows every child to learn math, reading, science and other subjects through fun, stimulating lessons. The teachers are concerned with helping children learn to think creatively and critically, rather than just having them memorize facts.

I went to this school and sixteen years later my children go to that school (And even the same teachers as when I went to school are still there!) Great school.
