    I feel like testing is a top priority in this school. We have some of the best teachers in the Mitchell County School System. The prinicpal is another great asset in our school.

    Buladean Elementary is a wonderful school. It has a small student/teacher ratio which provides more one on one for the students. Children have a chance to learn and excel in their clsses. The teachers are great and the principal is the best. Parent involvement is wonderful with the PTO. The academics are right on schedule with other schools in the area and my children have really learned a lot since attending. The music program is great with a wonderful caring fun loving teacher. Sports are great. All of the kids get along with each other. The classes have an average of 11 students per grade which is wonderful. I am very proud to be a parent of a student at Buladean.
