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'm in the 7th grade here and it's the best school I'v been to yet. Mr.Gunn is the nicest pricible I'v ever met and most of the teachers are nice too.
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!
Great school starts with the leaders and this school has a super principal 'Gunn' and VP 'Gutierrez'- Kids love em both which says a lot!
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
Everything is great at this school, some kids might be a litttle bad and in the way but that is taken care of right away.
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.
