We have attended Buljan for almost two years now. My daughter now thinks that she should wear as little clothing as possible, has been repeatedly "bullied" by mean girls and the principal has not been helpful with the situation. We have enjoyed the AVID program but will not miss it when we transfer to a different school next year.

This school has been crossed upon as, "a great school" "best education." & people believe that until the actually go to this school. Discipline is horrible. Kids dress inappropriate. Foul lain gauge occurs daily. It's become a school of disrespect. The teachers rely on the kids to do every assignment. But what they haven't realized, is some kids go home with pages of homework from OTHER classes. The principal told the students "Bullying is an overused word." When in fact, bullying isn't. And when they go to take care of the problem. They do nothing. I'm soon to be happy to live out of this school's district. Because I am completely tired of the lack of respect for students & parents.

This school is the worst school my son has ever been to. The girls dress inapropriately. There are drugs throughout the school. A complete lack of discipline and leadership. Kids making out and grabing each other at the nearby park imediately after school. When you address the issues with the principal, there is little to NO action taken. I am astounded that this school is so bad! I wouldn't even give this school 1 star if I didn't have to in order to warn other parents about this school.

Buljan is an OK school with respect to education and discipline. The staff is nice and kids are safe under Mr.Gunn . But if you are looking forward to challenge your kid this is not the best middle school. The so called GATE program extends to lot of kids who are not GATE and the actual GATE kids get lost and are neglected. No matter what the reputation of the school, lot of your kid's education lies in the teacher s hand who handles them in those years. Yes like the other parent has commented, your kid will benefit if she flaunts in shorts or minis, look and act chic rather than be studios. If your GATE kid needs to be challenged, then this is falls way too short with self-absorbed teachers at least in the lower grades.

I am a first year parent at George Buljan Middle School. I thought that this was going to be a great school however I am not impressed. The education my child received for 6th grade was very similar to his 5th grade curriculum. The biggest dissappointment of all is that the students have no disclipne. The students dress inappropriately and seem to have no respect for the rules or staff. There aren't many fights or bullies. This school has become a microcosm of the culture at large and all the problems and pressures kids face. Our modern culture is increasingly making the young old before their time. The lack of disclipne is alarming. If you try to get involved as a parent you get the bare minimum effort and the brush off after that. I expected more from such a nice city.

I am very impressed with this school. They have up to date technology and equipment. The school is small with a really effecient library. My 2 daughters attend this school and enjoy the math classes the most. The teacher here are very creative in styles of teaching, to help the students learn in a fun way. My daughters also love science taught at Buljan.

I agree with the other parents who state that the students do not get sufficient help from the teachers, and that the goal of the teachers and the administrators seems to be to shift all of the responsibility onto the parents. I will note that there are a few exceptions -- those rare teachers who do care about the students and want them to succeed. However, by and large, most of the teachers show little concern for the students. They routinely use failings grades as a means of "teaching a lesson" to students who are having difficulty keeping up, frequently without so much as an email or call to the parent to let them know there is a problem. Further, neither the principal nor the District staff do anything to respond to complaints and concerns from parents. I contacted the principal on several occasions with serious concerns, and NEVER got one response. There is no accountability whatsoever. The focus is on making sure the child in class so they get their funding. Neither the teachers nor administrators are concerned with the quality of the education they are providing or with the satisfaction of the public constituents they are supposed to serve.

I am a student attending Buljan Middle School (currently in eighth grade), and I LOVE this school! When I first came to this school, I had bad grades and I didn't care about anything that had even the slightest bit to do with school, but because of the teachers here at Buljan I raised my grades from c's and d's up to a's and b's. I will tell you from personal experiences that not only do the teachers here respect their students, but they actually care about them, and will do whatever they can to help them achieve the most that they possibly can.We all have crazy school pride and it almost makes me mad to see the bad comments about this wonderful school. :)

I talk from experience... this school is a great school for your child if: *you allow your child to wear extra short shorts *use inappropriate language *have boy/girlfriends * focused on drama instead of school *respect teachers who rarely respect you *allow your child to get worse grades than they did in the previous school As you can see, this school is NOT a good school for you and your child and i hope you choose a different one. and i was there when CONDOMS were found right under the picnic benches in the six grade area. Do not choose this School.

I am a parent. This is a VERY bad school. Teachers don't care, Kids are mean, they bullied my kid, CONDOMS were found at this school, (under a lunch table) There are childhood thiefs here, (they stole my kid's clothes 7 times!) And teachers rely on the teachers too much and don't help the kids, and too overcrowded.

Before I went into 6th grade, I heard nothing but great comments coming out of peoples mouths how Buljan is the best school they ever attended, and how Buljan helped their kids academically. When I fist started Buljan I loved it and I still do! About 2 monthns into my 6th grade year i had to move to a different school due to difficulties at home. That day was probably the saddset day of my life. My friends helped me through it, but i was still sad. I mean how could I be leaving this great school? I hope to attend this school again in my 8th grade year!!!

My daughter attends 7th grade at Buljan this year and loves it. I took her out of Eich due to scheduling errors and no response from the principal and went to the office at Buljan. What a different experience. Everyone was friendly and helpful...I didn't expect to 'get whatever we wanted' but I did expect receptive staff and I got it! My daughter hated science and math and now loves science...and is doing well in math. Thanks Buljan staff for making a stressful decision seamless!

Buljan is the best school ever. The teachers,principle,vice principle and office people are the nicest. At my other school I wasn't doing good in math but now with the help of my math teacher I am getting A's. They try to make it if for the student that do good by doing spirit days,pep rally ,clubs and many many more things to.I have one brother that graduated from there and he said those were the best years of his life.Then there's the amazing wood shop program were you can build a guitar and other cool things. All around it a awesome school and where hoping to win the DS award.

Our daughter just completed her 6th grade year at Buljan and it was a very positive and fun year! The Buljan administration and staff know what it takes for children to succeed... a positive, safe and nurturing environment! We are so blessed to be part of the Buljan Family! Mr. Gunn is top notch!

School is way overcrowded. Kids get lost in the system. It may work for a kid that is totally independent and doesn't need guidence. But what child at this age doesn't need it. Mr. Gunn is okay as long as there is no conflict. Once there is then he turns nasty and rude. School does not listen to parents concerns.

Buljan is a top-notch school. Mr Gunn is a superb principal and passionate about his Buljan family. We are thrilled to be a part of that family. The teachers truly care about the students and it shows in the grades and happy faces! We love Buljan!

Buljan Middle School is a phynominal school. It is hands down the best middle school in the surrounding areas. They have great teachers, an awesome principal and vice principal. The faculty is personable and is interesting in furthering your education. My older sister graduated from there 3 years ago and is attending St. Francis, getting college offers. I graduated 2 years ago and attend Jesuit High School with a 3.75 GPA. I have to credit these successes to Buljan Middle School.

Other than a disappointing experience with Track&Field my daughter had a great experience with her 3years at Buljan. It is a safe, positive learning environment. I worried about 'middle school' but this turned out to be a fantastic school overall, with an top-notch principal.

I went to Buljan Middle School in the 6th Grade and I'm now going into the 7th Grade. Personally, for me the school year was horrible. I was very dissapointed with Vice Principal Ms. Ponzo. And the connection that the parents had with teachers was very dissapointing also. Buljan was a horrible experience. And I am so happy to be leaving!

Okay well I'm a student at Buljan and I absolutely love it here. :) The principal, Mr. Gunn, is probably the most coolest and nicest guy you could ever meet! All the teachers try their hardest to educate us. When I move on to high school I will miss Buljan a lot.

We have been very happy with Buljan. Our first child graduated, our second child is there and our third will be attending in 3 years. The teachers seem very interested in what is best for the students and the office staff is always friendly and helpful. The principle is great and I like how he runs the school. He truly is a leader and the kids love him! Happy Parents

Quality of academic programs - Teachers for the most part have a general lack of enthusiasm for teaching. They discourage parental interest and/or involvement. Many teachers avoid student interactions, leaving this up to student TA's. The music program must struggle each year to stay alive.

We obtained an intradistrict transfer for our son after he failed all classes at another school but hey refused to retain him. The staff at Buljan have taken a keen interest in our son's success. This year at Buljan he has a 3.4 GPA and has joined the wrestling team. He feels worthy and successful at Buljan, which has made all the difference. The teachers and administation take a hand-on approach to special needs, and are never too busy to meet or talk, including Vice Principal Pablo Gutierrez, who personally calls and keeps us abreast of our son's progress.
