    "My son attended this school. They do not have control over the students. They are loud and rude. The faculty was not able to control them. I think they were scare of the students. They have about 20 security guards around the premises. After classes there are cop cars patrolling the perimeter of the school. I attended a concert at the school and the kids did not sit quietly to listen to the music. They were yelling, talking, etc. The faculty did not do anything. My son did not go to the lunchroom because of the students. It is not a good school."

    "I am a former student. I graduated in 1964, I know the days of the dinosaurs. All this about early or late session and other things do not answer the question about the students. The school was a few years old when I attended and it was a great place of pride, we were well behaved, if there were gangs they were not very visible nor any problem. Parents and kids cared about school, the community and the world. Our generation had fear and respect for our teachers and would never think of doing some of the things we hear about today. What a pity that some students are disruptive and feel the right to ruin the education of others. I am the teacher and I only want the best for every student there but they are not entitled nor have the right to disrupt the teaching I work so hard at. I am in my 36th year and still love this profession but I know the students have indeed changed because they feel they are entitled to do whatever they please. Van Buren in my days was a school where kids were involved in the Peace Corps Teacher Corps, Civil Rights marches right there next to Dr. king, protesting Viet Nam and other social ills."

    "This is my first year attending this school and when i first got accepted to this school i was scared. Everyone said it was bad and many kids were bullied. This school is not bad, the teachers are excellent and their are many people who can help enjoy your experience here. The school signed a contract with a hospital for a pre-med program. The school is good but there are those students who just dont want to work. I currently have all honors classes and the time here is not that bad. My experience here is starting to become better and better. The new Principal is trying his best to make the school better. He has already done a great job. Soon, this school will be the best and people will want to come here with no hesitation! This is a good school if you want to learn, all schools are good to learn but now the school is offering a wide range of programs including pre-med, engineering, psychology and law. Overall, as a student and with no hesitation i would say the school is good."
