48 Parent Reviews for Buena High School

I was supposed to be a freshman at Buena for 2013-2014, but my dad got orders and we moved from Ft. Huachuca. If Tombstone High School was closer, my twin and I would go there. Buena was a wonderful band, top 50 in the nation, always going to trips. They have a painting in th band room showing evy place ...  Read more

As a soldier who has been assigned at Fort Huachuca for several tours, I must warn others to avoid Fort Huachuca if you have High School age students and pick up an assignement elsewhere until the children are through school. The facility is fantastic which it shoudl as it cost twice as much as was ...  Read more

I read the two previous reviews with some concern and chagrin. Yes the school has around 2000 students and 800-1000 computers. Also many sporting events require some long travel distances. For the last several years the taxpayers have had the opportunity to step up to help bring the equipment, facilities ...  Read more

An ok school. The education Program is pretty effective, and the school has quite a selection of clubs. This school has to work on their sports. Then it would be a stronger and more popular school.

We moved to Sierra Vista in 2008 with a sophomore. If I could go back I would have homeschooled him for his last 3 years over the ONLY choice for a high school in this city of 40,000! It's ridiculous that the city didn't see the smarter choice would have been 2 or 3 SMALLER high schools where there ...  Read more

The school is very poorly designed for the amount of students. There's something like 2600+ students in a school that should have about half as many. There's some good teachers though. Not just from a teaching perspective, but quite a few of my teachers really gave me (as well as the other students) ...  Read more

Buena has some of the most caring and effective teachers you could hope to find. It's a shame they are hampered by such inadequate leadership at the top. With so many highly qualified administrators out of work because of our present economy it's sad we have no one who knows how to do a nationwide search ...  Read more

We moved from Northern CA where the school was outstanding in my opinion. Buena High offers so much more than any school I have seen in CA!!! The staff is great, and the city supports the school phenominally!!! Truly amazing!!!!
