Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
The teachers all seem very enthusiastic about being at Buford. They care very much for their students and have a lot of support from the administration and staff. A safe learning atmosphere is strongly supported.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
So far, it seems age appropriate. With classroom sizes being small, the teachers have the benefit of adjusting when and if necessary the level of work and help a student may need.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
Students are provided an agreement at the beginning of each school year explaining honesty and integrity. It is an agreement between the students/parents and teachers and staff.

The teachers, staff and administration do an outstanding job. They all seem to enjoy being there and make everyone feel welcome. Buford City Schools provide a "community atmosphere"

Amount of homework: Agree

The homework at our level (5th grade) has been about right. In previous years I felt it was too much. Especially when you add in the extra reading,.

The academic performance of the students is excellent. The teachers are very good and always willing to help the children when they have a problem. Also they keep the parents very well informed about what is going on in the schools. Any problem that we have had has been addressed immediately.

Buford recently changed administration. I had such a positive experience when I contacted Kaleen Pulley. The adminstration treats you with kindness and respect regardless of your problem. Strong leadership is the foundation of a great school. Buford Academy is excellent.

I have 2 children in Buford City schools, one in the Academy and one in Middle school, both have been in Buford since kindergarten. Our experiences with teachers have been incredible with one exception which was immediately handled by the Principal. Buford school pride is over the top and the community is awesome. Outstanding academics and extracurricular activities. We feel blessed to be part of such an awesome school. Go Wolves!!

My child used to attend schools nearby in another district, and since we moved to Buford ditrict, my child has had great teachers! Im impressed with the parent/teacher contact and the creative lessons that my child comes home telling us at the dinner table. My child has had a positive experience so far and he is only in 3rd grade! Thanks Ms. Mcelroy for providing that for him! He now looks forward to going to school! Buford has great athletic opportunities as well!
