Buena Vista Arts-Integrated Elementary School Reviews
This is one of the best schools ever! This is a public magnet school where the arts are intregrated into the academic curriculum. It's a small school, 413 and its like a small town where everyone knows everyone. The teachers and parents have close working relationships and we have an awesome administrative staff. There is a high percentage of high achieving students and I think it is because of the arts influence.
Excellent school that offers an integrated curriculum to include the arts. The teachers and staff are so caring for our kids. The test scores do not tell the whole story of what Buena Vista has to offer. I wouldn't send my kids any place else.
