Van Buren is an amazing school! The teachers and staff care anout the child as a whole person and not only about their education. My daughter attends there and I am so proud of all she has accomplished!

I look back on the start of the education of our two sons with admiration of the Van Buren staff. Both boys are in college now ([one] in his second year at Xavier University with a major of Sports Management and [the other] in his first year at Vincennes with a major of Homeland Security), but the start they got was very important to the demeanor they are today. They had the opportunity to be on the learning grounds of professional, dedicated teachers like Mr Chapin, Mr Haskel, Mr Van Paris, Mrs Walters, Mrs Warren and Mrs Castor to name a few. Extra curricular activities and the PTO rounded out an educational experience they draw from today. Parents and educators working together to make young men from young boys. A long time coming, but thanks for being there for our sons.

I love how her school involves me and teaches her. I would reccomend it to any parent! And I plan on sending my younger children there as well!

This school is great!! My daughter came to this school in the third grade and has been soo happy! She is now a fifth grader and we wish she didn't have to go to middle school next year! The entire staff from the principal, teachers, office workers, cafeteria workers and janitors are awesome! They all truly care about the kids and it shows! My daughter was actually looking forward to going back to school after the summer break! She is learning so much and I am very grateful that she is being prepared for the transition to middle school. Not to mention the incredible fourth grade field trips!!
