My daughter loves it here. Her friends are supportive and kind. We have been impressed by all her teachers. All the teachers have been responsive to any questions we've had and she has plenty of homework to challenge her at home. She has said her math teacher, Ms. Amina, explains the subject better ...  Read more

Buchser is an amazing school. I whole heartedly disagree with the previous review. The administration supports a safe learning environment and are all very professional. The staff works hard for the students and treat each child as an individual. If you walk onto campus you can feel the sense of pride ...  Read more

Buchser is the best school in the Santa Clara Unified School District. Having worked at each of the district's middle schools, I can honestly say that this middle school has the best teachers, staff, and students. They take issues of bullying and good citizenship seriously, and that reflects in student ...  Read more

This is an updated review, as I cannot figure out how to edit the other. If you find the error, you'll get a good laugh for the day. We have lived all over the US, attending a dozen+ schools, and Buchser was the most uncomfortable experience we've had. The orchestra program is underdeveloped. The band ...  Read more

Buchser is a great middle school with caring teachers and a principal that listens. The school provides BBQ's, teacher verses students in sports and everyone has a blast. We are on our third child there at Buchser and have enjoyed every year.

* In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
