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.

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.

Teachers promote with praise and other forms of recognition not only for good work, but genuine effort.

Students are regularly taught about bullying and its negative effects. They also promote RED week (stay away from drugs)

Throughout the year, the students and parents are given opportunities to help the community and their fellow students who may be less fortunate. Students are encouraged in the classrooms to help their fellow students.

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"

Mrs. Pulley does an excellent job of running the Academy. I would also like say what a good job the teachers do and Christy at the front desk.

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,.
