    Buna Elementary is an amazing campus full of great teachers. They are kind and compassionate and really innovative. As the parent of a kindergarten student last year they all made my experience a wonderful one!

    What a great safe school to send my kids everyday. I'm so pleased with all the teachers and staff members. BES focuses on education AND makes my kids know that they're cared about. Parents are treated with respect and input is appreciated. We love Buna Elementary and can't imagine our kids going anywhere else!

    All of my kids have gone through Buna Elementary. I was always so pleased with the educational opportunties they were given on a daily basis. Not only are students at BES taught academic skills they're also shown by example how to be a good person in the community. What a wonderful place for students to get their educational start!

    Buna Elementary is just a wonderful place to send my little ones every day. I never have to worry about them being taken care of in every way. The staff is courteous and kind and respectful. They always put the kids first. In everything they do they try to always do what's best. I trust them with my most prized possessions - my kids. I'm so glad I get to be a part of Buna and the Buna schools!

    I don't know how these ratings are decided but I feel like any school that fails to provide students with reading books and only spends an hour and a half a week providing higher education for gt students should recievewa failing grade. We are six weeks into the 2011/2012 school year and without reading books for third grade. I have one child in college. He told me that its nice in college to go to class and actually learn something and not just be taught to pass a test (refering revering to the taks)

    This is a wonderful school for children that are 4th 5th and 6th generation in the area and excel at sports. If you are concerned about education then DO NOT even look at this district. It is a close-minded community that only selects kids for sports theater etc based on the kid's family. You could have the best football player but if you are not in the 'clique' then your child will be benched. Most teachers are born and raised in Buna get their teaching degree from Lamar and then come back to teach the same poor grammar to the children. It is a pathetic excuse for a school district.
