I personally loved my time at Buena High School. I know it can be a controversial school, some people love it and others hate it, but I really enjoyed my time there. I had some great teachers, and really loved learning about certain topics. Of course I had some teachers that I didn't like, but every school has teachers no one likes. I really liked my time being in ASB because I was able to help plan so many fun events, specifically for the senior class. I took german for all four years and also participated in the exchange program. My teacher was amazing, and really had a passion for german which transferred to us having that same passion. The exchange brought me some of my best friends and greatest memories. I also met some of my best friends at buena, and it was always so fun hanging out in the parking lot. I did have a few issues with the volleyball program, but I was so happy they brought beach volleyball because that was one of my highlights. Overall my experience was great.
I enjoyed the options for off campus meals, ROP and being able to get different certificates while still in school. For the most part it was a pretty close knit community. The gang population had it's moments with race wars, stabbings, and all out brawls. But all in all I liked it better than Ventura. Go Bulldogs
My experience at Buena has been a great one with a lot of good memories and opportunities at hand. Buena has excellent academics, diversity, and dedicated teachers who strive hard to give the best possible education to students in any way possible.
Most of the teachers I had were dedicated, caring, and committed to their students. They are knowledgeable and always willing to help.
Everyone was great and I had a really nice time. The staff was amazing and really helped me on my academic journey as well as supported me through hard times in my life.
I love this school! Great teachers and really makes me feel comfortable, welcome, and allows me to get a good education while having fun.
My teachers were very supportive of me, but I wish there had been more AP Classes and better SAT prep for students. Overall, great school spirit, and I loved my school’s music program so much (though it was definitely under funded.)
Buena High School is overall a good school. It serves its purpose of educating children at a fundamental level. While this is good, it has its issues. It is run by a school district that is stricken with issues. The administration is weak. Behavior issues are not resolved well. They do not support the teachers that need it. The teachers are dedicated to there class, but most aren't willing to help out beyond that. Education can be superb if the student is an active participant and uses what is offered by the teachers.
I attended Buena in 2014-2018, although I did have some good experiences at Buena a lot of it was meet with a lack of leadership with office staff. There was many issues when it came to sports, as a swimmer our program was wildly underfunded. We were swimming in a pool that was beginning to sink into the foundation, had a broken heater, and failed to filter out trash and other contaminants. Our grievances were voiced and denied.
I have spent all 4 years at Buena and each year was better than the last. The staff and teachers are the best thing about Buena. There are some teachers who I personally think should retire and some that I would recommend to stay and people should try out their classes.
it was a high school, there wasn't anything stupendous about it. I had fun, the science department is good, offers many ap classes.
This will be my second year attending Buena High School. I feel like my overall experience so far has been average. I have made good connections with staff members and people in my classes. There are some staff members that have not been the greatest as well as some students. I overall think Buena High is a good school.
I loved the friendly, social environment at the school and the teachers were all very kind. However, I do not feel like I received an education that completely prepared me for college level studies in some subjects.
Buena high is a good school personally because its a small school so its more comfortable, teachers do make an effort to help students and faculty gets along well with everyone. Social events at the school do nee some work but they are still fun to attend.
Buena offered me a great school experience, I was able to take classes that were needed. My counselor has helped me a lot through all the classes that I need in order to go to college. she has kept me on track and I now have exceeded my credits in order to graduate and apply to colleges. Buena also offers many AP and classes as well as college courses.
Buena High School provides a great number of opportunities for students and allows them to take classes that are geared towards their intended major. They offer unique classes such as criminal justice and cooking to allow students to take classes that they can potentially see themselves going in the years to come. Buena has the most rigorous classes in the school district and really challenges students that go there.
The school is trying to become inclusive, but it still has it’s difficulties with controversial problems. It has amazing teachers who try and put the students first, with having AP classes available as well. One thing I wish was that there was safety people as in security for people during zero period,because we are on campus alone.
