    We have custody of our grandson and he will be in the 5th grade this year 2013-2014. We have been very satisfied with the school teachers and staff. If we have questions they have are answered to our satisfaction. Ernie and Pam Baker

    I was very upset with this school and some of the teachers. They told us not to correct our children when they make a mistake in writing that they will catch on then when we tried to get involved in the teacher wouldnt let us work with us at home. When the kids got sick they wouldnt let us work from home with them but we were not to send them to school. This school made being an involved parent impossible. We are now attending another school and our child is way behind we have to really work with them. We do not believe this school was a good school and hope to never have to go back again!!!

    Both of my boys are of to a great start at Buchanan. The principal took great care in getting the little ones off of the bus and made sure they found their classrooms. The school nurse is terrific too-my son has already visited with swimmer's ear. I feel very comfortable with my children under the school's care.

    My son is not satisfied with this school. He says the teachers are hard on him so I do not recommend this school for your children.

    My child has attended this school for 5 years and I have never had any complaints.I think this school is great for a childs self esteem. They have really encouraged my child to reach her full potential. It has been a blessing in my life as well as my childs to have this educational enthusiasm that will follow her through the rest of her life.
