Buchser Middle School Reviews
I relocated to Santa Clara during the 2010-2011 school year. I was had concerns as my daughter has only attended private schools in Washington D.C; thus far. To my great relief she was very happy and the curriculum met our requirements for her educational plan.
I graduated from there when it was Santa Clara High. My son is a 6th grader now. The school is large for a middle school so that's a plus. My son likes it and his teachers are good. Very organized instruction. Go Band.
You're kidding right? This school provides substandard programs and less than adequate guidance. The teachers are "tired" and tenured. My son received excellent instruction at Haman and the shock of the less than caring teachers was unfortunate. The bullies run rampant and very little is done in the way of real action. The school leadership is horrible, unprofessional, and rough around the edges. Buchser is a prime example of how California has screwed up our school system.
My child has gone to Buchser Middle School now my second child is going and they loved it there. This is the best school i know I recommend this school to everyone!
My son has gone to this school and he has loved it there I am positive that this is one f my son's most favorite of all the schools. Thanks you Buchser Middle School we appreciated this a lot. :D
