About this school

Buena Vista Elementary School is an amazing place to learn. Our school may be one of the oldest facilities in the district, but that is one of the facts that makes it charming. We have a new playground structure, updated technology and ADA compliant walkways as well as a brand new auditorium and kitchen. Our small student numbers make it possible for students and families readily connect with one another. We stress safety, respect and effort for all children and staff. BV dolphins amaze!
