    "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 from both teachers and students. The culture is one every parent would want for their child. I am a parent who is also in education. I have been involved with a lot of school. This school is special. There is a true sense of community and I feel lucky to be a part of it."

    "The principal Mr.Eaton has poor leadership skills and the vice principal is very rough and unprofessional.The teachers don't care about students that fall behind and are not held accountable.They don't reach out to the student or parent to support the child.The worst school my children every attended we have moved around a lot and without a dough the WORST school my children have attended. If I could give a zero star I would."

    "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 performance."

    "I had a great experience at Buchser. The past three years were quite great. The band teacher taught me how to play a flute within a week, and last year, for my 8th grade year, I was in advanced band. It really was a pleasure to work with the band teacher. The choir and orchestra teacher is quite mean, though. I had nothing but good teachers all three years. A few really stood out to me. I am beyond happy I went to this school. There is a bit of a problem with bullying, but the VP is SUPER strict, and can take care of it within 24 hours. The lunches are okay. I heard they closed down the snack bar, though. What gives! They had decent cookies! The water bottle machines are faulty. DO NOT USE THEM. They can and will eat your $1.25. The place really needs a big face-lift. The bathrooms are unsanitary, and full of graffiti. Except for the bathrooms in the science wing, they are all the same bathrooms from when the school opened, back then. They are disgusting. Some stalls don't even have locks! But, even through that, I made a few excellent friends, and the teachers really know what they were doing. THANK YOU BUCHSER!"

    "The teachers are fine. What suffers at this school is the leadership. The Principal, Mr. Eaton is both ineffective and not polished with his communications to the parents. This is the last year my daughter will be attending Buchser. No lockers for students this year and there was no prior notice and no rolling backpacks are allowed. The kids have to carry their lunch, supplies, binders and PE clothes and shoes. The Walk-a-thon email went out the night before the event and asked for $50/student! The head of the PTA has no issue pursuing parents (at student registration!) who decline PTA membership due to financial hardship. The leadership lacks organization and professionalism. The Principal and President and VP of the PTA are positions needing new leadership."
