I am not happy with the education my child receives. It is only a good school if your child doesn't struggle. If he or she does I would suggest putting them in another school. I have had to spend money on Sylvan when Van Buren should have done more to help my child. Since he didn't fall into the percentage of economically challenged kids he does not receive extra help. Its ridiculous. Now I know why the benchmark scores are so low compared to the state average. I am looking for another school before next school year. If you think your child has future in football Van Buren is not the school you want either. The high school NEVER has a winning season. Not many recruiters sitting in the stands I suspect. If the education was there I wouldn't even be concerned with the sports program because to me academics comes ffirst, but Van Buren can't offer either one.
