Great school! My child loves to go to school every day. Faculty is top notch. I would highlly recommend if your child gets in.
Being located in downtown Charleston, South Carolina makes space limited for a school, but Buist Academy makes the best out of it. The newly constructed building is comfortable yet modern for the attending students.
