Buist Academy Reviews
Rating 4.15 out of 5 20 reviews
I have been going to Buist academy for 8 years and I have learned a lot and done very much. There are great opportunities with clubs and the teachers offer many after schools help programs. When I have questions the teachers never fail to help me out.
Terrible school culture. Little is done to regulate bullying. The children choose a scapegoat and make everyone hate them. A lot of kids are also racist/homophobic/transphobic. Try to spare your kids from this school if you have other options. Also, the classes really aren't hard at all in my experience, although they get amazing funding so they have stuff like 3D printers and a great science program. Most of the teachers are pretty good but they don't do anything to regulate bullying. The clubs are great, too, especially yearbook.
Nothing can compare to the strong and supportive relationships with teachers, specifically the middle school teachers from my limited recollections. Superb school, pure and innocent atmosphere compared to high school and other middle schools!
Buist Academy is a grade school for children who are academically gifted. The teachers make sure that you are caught up with the rest of the class and will hold the class back to get you ready for the next subject. In my grade only a tenth of the kids are colored. The diversity is very poor. But everything else about the school is really great and the teachers and staff really care about the students well-being and we'll ask you how you doing if they see something might be wrong. Parents love to help out at the school and parents always volunteer or bring things in a few needed.
Buist is the best school in South Carolina! Ms. Good is the best teacher there (Humanities teacher for 8th and 7th grade). I have been going to Buist for a while and it is a great school and has provided a safe environment and a great educational experience.
Great school! My child loves to go to school every day. Faculty is top notch. I would highlly recommend if your child gets in.
I have really loved almost everything about our first year there!
There is a gym that is nice and a good playground. Because of location, there are no other options for fields/sports.
No real opinion about this as this is our first year there and my child is young.
There are not many options for extra curricular. The main focus is basketball. My dad helped develop the volleyball team, however, no money from the school was given for support or help. It all came out of pocket. There is an option for Junior Beta Club and also theater productions.
Buist Academy teaches kids to be accepting no matter what. As a result of the school being so small everyone for the most part gets around and are friends.
The nurse knows everyone because the school is so small, so kids are not afraid to go see the nurse if something is wrong which can make a huge difference. The school is extremely safe and goes through many safety measures to ensure that everyone in the building is 100% safe.
Academically Buist Academy prepared me for high school. I learned how to work and how to study effectively. This school is unique because it is so small that everyone is a family. I would choose this school again because it prepared me for the toughness and dedication needed to survive high school successfully.
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.
Buist Academy is centered around education. There are some sports opportunities, however, it is not like other elementary and middle schools. Excellence in academics is their standard.
Everyone from the office staff to the principle are heavily involved in the policies and well being of the school. The staff are what make this school as wonderful as it is recognized to be.
Food options and the healthiness of this options increased as I spent my 9 years at Buist Academy for Advanced Studies. Students enjoyed it and staff was happy to serve it.
