    "This school was horrible in the years of 2007-2008. losts of students faught,dropped out of school and once set the bathroom on fire.later in 2008-2009...we got a new principle and new teachers.the music program is was incredible and teachers worked their hardest to teach kids but we only had a few electives.my 8th grade year 2009-2010,it has been more than an honor comming to this school.we got more electives,a new clinic,more support from teachers and i have inproved my fcat scores from then!!!! im so happy i came to buchanan and if you send your child here,you won't regret it either.:);)"

    "(a student point of veiw) i am a sudent at buchanan middle school and this is my last year there honestly i dont like it that much are school is poor so we never get to do anything the only dance we have is the eigth grade dance only avid and stem classes can go on field trips everyone else has to wait till after the fcat even though im learning the same thing they are.we have one prep rally a school year but the band is pretty cool even though the teacher is strict but if you heard the band play you wouldnt belive that they were middle schoolers . we dont have any clubs or an art elective.the teacher write the school news paper and only tell how good the school is.the teachers usally have to supplie the classroom with there own money."

    "I am a teacher at this school and have enjoyed myself up to this point. I have been in three different counties and at 4 different middle schools. Buchanan has been by far my best experience. I have noticed that many parents in the recent years have started to forget how different and difficult teaching is. Many students have begun to challenge teachers much more than in the past; but instead of students and parents owning up to these issues, teachers are suddenly to blame. Communication with teachers is the key, and the last week of a nine weeks does not count as communicating. I look forward to working with every student, everyday at this point in my career. So I agree with the parents who understand that Buchanan isnt in the middle of tampa palms but they see that it is a diamond in the rough."
