My son had a terrible situation with his teacher and we only got lip service from the administration. By the time I realized that nothing was going to change, it was too late in the year to change classes or schools. This school has some wonderful teachers. We were fortunate for have them for 4 years, but the last year was a nightmare. If you suspect a problem with a teacher, try to check it out immediately. Don't assume a school that has some excellent teachers can't/won't have an awful teacher(s). Don't assume the administration is going to help you. They have allowed this teacher to behave this way (to some degree) for years. If they make it inconvenient for you to spend time in the classroom or if they won't let you show up on short notice, assume something is wrong. It's a waiting game. If they can stall you long enough, you won't be able to pull your child out of the class without disrupting their academic experience. I am so disappointed that this last year tainted all the good memories we had at this school

Excellent school with challenging academic standards. We moved our son from a top private school in the area to Buena Vista and have not been disappointed. Wonderful parent participation and and a teaching staff that goes the extra step to make sure each childs full potential is realized.

We are very happy with the school, my daughter who seem to be a whiz is challenged enough to enjoy and learn. Teacher's have been willing to take the extra step to help kids who are already better to go one step further at the same time spending enough time with kids who need help to get them going....

We attended this school for 18mo before moving out of the country. They have high standards in the classrooms. My son recieved needed help in some speech and was quickly helped. The parent teacher association is huge!
