Buena Terra Elementary School Reviews

Buena Terra Elementary

By , a Former Student on

I was a former student and I've gone to Buena Terra for about 7 years ever since Kindergarten till 6th grade. The lunch isn't that bad and very healthy compared to the past years. The only thing your child can't miss out on is their final year at Buena Terra. There will be so many privileges for them. Thank You, I hope this helps with the review of Buena Terra Elementary.

By a Parent on

I think the school is great. I am very pleased with the direction the principal is taking to turn Buena Terra into an excellent learning experience for our children.

By a Parent on

Rude office staff!  Very unwelcoming feel and atmosphere, especially when no parents provoked the negative energy.  Budget cuts should not affect the staff's attitude toward parents and children!  If they do not like it, quit.
