The Van Buren Schools that I had graduated from, is not the same as it is now. I came back to the area to raise my children in a GREAT school system, and was shocked as to see it deteriorate right in front of me. It was not to the high standards that I was use to when I was going through school when I got there and now they will be luck to have a school district in 2-5 years. With the loss of Mr. Russell and several other teachers/administrator that have stock in the system and have been there for 20 years and several awesome resource and aids, there is NO WAY I WOULD EVER TELL ANYONE TO COME HERE TO RAISE THEIR CHILDREN!! BULLYING IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT....AND IS THE NORM. I was glad that my children were able to survive as long as they could here. I never thought I would think of sending my children to Harmony (not that I did one BARELY graduated and the youngest went to live with his father for a chance to thrive). THANKS FOR NOTHING!

Snooty secretary, adolescent principal, what next? Teachers at Van Buren seem to change every year, for the last 9 years my kids have attended. (PS, they're not at VB anymore). When I walked in to parent teacher conferences and saw the lines of unscheduled parents sitting outside of EACH AND EVERY classroom, except maybe art, and then on the next turn saw the principal, tie and all, playing some sort of bouncy ball with the janitor in the corridor, I knew this had to be a joke. No, wait, its my kids educators. Thanks VB, for killing every last shred of faith I had in you.

Very happy that we have seperated the 6-8 kids into their own building!

School Board must address the issue of student discipline. A much harsher discipline policy must happen for a better and safer school

School would be better if the Junior High and High School were in different buildings. Too much mixing of the older and younger kids which does not allow the High School kids to be High Schoolers and exposes younger kids to things they should not be exposed to at that age.

Teachers work hard to keep academic standards high. Very poor parent involvement.
