My son is an 8th grader at this school and has been there for 2 years and I am very pleased with the school. There are many children in this world that are very rude so why blame the school for the rudeness. My sone use to go to a Magnet school and they were the worst (Stewart Middle). I always get automated information from the school and the teachers care about the students. As you can tell by the comments the parents are the obnoxious ones that's where their children get it from. Give the teachers a break...

This school without a doubt is incredibley disgusting. I attended this school in 6th grade and I have to say that it was a very horrible experience. If your child is harrased nothing will be done about it and the school is in low supply of school items and nothing is provided for the students.I have seen janitors all over the school, but they seem to be doing nothing!! The restrooms are always filthy! The teachers, faculty and staff along with the children are incredibley rude and inconsiderate. They do absoultely nothing!! I am so glad that I was transferred to a different school.

This school is awful. If your child is a very good student, do not send them here because they will suffer tremendously. Teachers have no control over the students. The school doesn't get enough funds to supply the children with the necessary items, tissue or books for one example. I hate sending my niece there every day. All parents if you have a way to take your child somewhere else, please do so. If not, please beware and please stay involved so you know what is going on in the school.

For the most part I am happy with the school and the staff. I love the new gym. and hope it will be well utilized. I do feel there is a lack of discipline but also understand how the laws and climate in our society effect the teachers' ability to discipline. I do feel that parents signing out children should have a place close to the office to park and should not have to go upstairs! I am very upset about students not being able to use the lockers at school. Both of my childrens book bags are packed.

Van Buren has always been a rough school with numerous problems. I have not seen any improvement in the past 20 years since I was a student there.
