HORRIBLE!!! When there is poor LEADERSHIP what else is to be expected. My child's teacher is actually great!! She does her best to push the students to the next level. He is not in the G&T program. The principal has got to be the worst I've ever seen. Her only concern is money, money & more money! It's b/c of the GT program that the school is still in decent standing. However, after this year, it's more likely to decline due to her lack of interest in student achievement. Even parents on the PTA feel the same way. What about the kids in the reg. educ. prog.? Do they not matter or is it all about GT & $? Every parent that I've spoken w/ whose been dealing w/ the school for yrs. feel as if principal Jones does not have the students best interest @ heart. ALL OF THE STUDENTS SHOULD MATTER & SHE SHOULD WANT THEM TO SUCCEED.

It might have received 5 out of 10 in a 10 point scale probably because of not so high score from some regular program. However, the gifted program is excellent and should be rated as 9 or 8 out of 10. Most of the gifted teachers are excellent (probably one tight teachers I know does not posseses very high standard: he is little lazy). Principal is excellent!!

I have a child in the gifted program, and the teaching leaves a lot to be desired. The goal seems to be how much the kids can complete in a day, with no emphasis on a real understanding of the topic at hand.

My children both have attended Buchanan. The gifted academic program and the teachers are excellent. The buildings and the neighborhood are not.
