  • This is one of the best schools I have ever seen. The teachers are incredibly interested in the students and their well-being. I am so fortunate that my children are able to attend Buford schools.

  • Buford City Schools are the best. I was just reading the other person's rating and completely disagree. These teachers are there to teach and having a classroom with so many kids its hard. Respect and Discipline need to be done at home so that when your child goes to school they can be taught educationally. Respect starts at home. My kids have been in this school system for 10 years and if your a good kid, then you don't get suspended. Take care of attitude problems at home. These kids drop out because their parents want to baby them and never make them complete something. How bout you teach your child to not give up and teach them how to act at home so the teachers can teach Math, Science, Social Studies etc...Buford Schools ROCK!!!

  • This school is doing nothing to educate our youth. Instead they are constantly looking for a reason to kick these children out of school, throwing them to the parents and basically saying "We're not dealing with your child and any normal and age appropriate misbehavior and they will now be forced to miss school." STOP! THINK! This school is punishing children by kicking them out of school for a day sometimes two. NO WONDER children are dropping out of school at an early age! They aren't being given a chance to strive and learn from their mistakes! This school is pathetic and ridiculous!
