    "My eldest son attended this school 6 years ago and was never happy with anything there and then my middle son attend his freshman year and then we moved away and returned last year. It was a difficult time for our family at this time for many reasons but he was excited to return here and see his old friends. Less then a month into school he got in trouble with 3 other boys for being out in the parking lot and smoking pot. They all were suspended as I see correct action but only expelled my son. It was not his car or confirmed not his drugs. I believe my son was punished more severe because of the color of his skin. The other boys were able to return to school with no further punishment. Unfair and unjust! But in the long run this is the best thing Buena could have done. My son now attends Berean Academy and has been there 1 1/2 doing better then ever, involved, teachers love him and he feels good there."

    "This district needs to change their discipline policy for students who assault other students. The maximum they get is 9 days, yes 9 days! The only reason they get 9 days is because if they are absent more than 10 days they must be disenrolled. Who cares, expel them make them accountable for their actions then maybe the parents will step in and do something to make them live a normal and productive life. Not one where you go around thinking you can do whatever to whomever you want. It's time to take a stand against bullying."

    "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."
