    I would highly recommend this school to anyone. My daughter is a third generation Dragon and we wouldn't have her going anywhere else! The class size to teacher ratio is wonderful and the staff genuinely cares about their kids.

    Mid Buchanan is a GREAT school. My son loves it. He is in 4th grade and has loved all of his teachers. The principal Ms. Smiddy is nothing less than amazing. I would recommend this school district to anyone. I am aware they do not compete in the spelling bee but I do know that they have the option evey year but the majority of students choose not to participate which is fine with me. I know my son will do great at this school and I will make sure he stays in the district. Thanks Mid Buchanan!

    We live in Mid Buch's school district but do not send our kids to this school. This elementary does not offer spelling bees geography bees and academic teams for the students to participate in. We were told that the elementary principal believes that competition is too stressful for the children! If your child excels in academics and likes to participate in these events - then this school is not for you!! We've never heard of a school not competing in a spelling bee!!! Unbelievable!!!!

    Good families in general at this school. Very poorly paid teachers and the Superintendent seems to be proud of this fact per a recent newsletter. High teacher turnover last year resulting in many inexperienced teachers. There appear to be one set of rules for certain families and another set for the rest.
