Buena Terra Elementary School Reviews
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.
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.
