    "I absolutely love this school for my kids. the Academics and extra curricular activities are amazing, and the teachers really care. I feel so safe leaving my kids at school in the morning, knowing I have nothing to worry about, that they will be well protected and in a nurturing environment while there. I have many choices for high schools, and I choose Buena for my children."

    "Unfortunately I would have to agree with many of the parents and students that have commented. I am so grateful I have no more children to put through the public school system. When we moved here my child excelled in AP level classes. We transferred here during the school year and the school would not even recognize her previous AP placements. They enrolled her is lower level classes. She was bored and frustrated. In addition to her years at Buena she felt like nothing more than a number. My student was so disappointed by the size and layout of the school and the amount of students in the classes that my student had much difficulty bonding with any classmates. There was only 1 teacher that encouraged her to excel and seek outside interests. I would encourage all parents to research alternatives."

    "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 they have been. The JROTC is good as well. My twin brither was going to join, and I have many friends as well who are or was in JROTC. That's the only good things about Buena. The school is to small for the amount of kids who go there. There are 2,300+ kids in just the 2012-2013 school year alone. And Sierra having about four middle schools, adding Colonel Smith on the Army bass, they are adding at least 700 kids. If you have the chance chose Tombstone seeing its smaller, may not have all the same thing Buena does."

    "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 promised the taxpayer in 1990, complete with rotating stages etc. The downfall is seemingly the attitude of the staff. Lesser funded districts in other states do far better than SVPSD does with more. The only program that seems to succeed is the JROTC, the rest seem to just attempt to get by. The school receives adequate funding, but instruction is poor, and no apparent discipline. Perhaps if the students did not look like rag bags in shorts every morning more pride in instruction would come forth. Additionally, this is the only school district we have lived in that is totally dependant upon busing ALL students to their campus regardless of location. Great savings could be harvested for those who seek greater flexibility in funding on that effort alone."

    "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 and everything associated with a top notch school to provide the best opportunities for our students. They, the taxpayer, have failed miserably resulting in a reduction of over 14 million dollars for the budget. In spite of their failure, the professionals in the teaching and administrative staff and students have preformed admirably. 2012 class earned over 7.3 million in scholarships for 520 students. I challenge the complainers to step up and put their money where their mouth is.!!!!!!"
