Star burning out...Ask a LOT of questions before you enroll. It has all gone downhill now, with few who care at all about excellence.
Ask them: to sit in and observe a class, what is their percentage of failing students in their most difficult class, ask them how and how quickly they deal with at risk students in a class, ask them how quickly they normally grade a test, what student advocates program features, what discipline they allow for dealing with students and their teachers, especially their coaches. Scandal after scandal, and nothing is “wrong” at Buford? Better check the “smoke” to see if there is fire, is all I’m suggesting.

I have been a student at Buford city schools since my 6th grade year. Over the course of 5 years, I’ve realized how blessed I am to have such a supportive school system. Buford city provides great facilities, technology, teachers, and athletics. A new basketball arena was built less than 3 years ago and already a brand new high school is being built. The Buford city school council provides the students with excellent resources so they have the best chance to get a top notch education. I am so thankful to be a student in the Buford city school system.
As an Alum that attended Buford City Schools from kindergarten through graduation, I can honestly say that my schooling experience was irreplaceable. The culture of BufoRD is something that is deeply ingrained in each of their students. The teachers genuinely care, and do not merely teach to meet standards. I can also attest to the options provided in all aspects of participation. Almost every single person I graduated with was heavily involved in at least one (usually multiple) activities aside from curriculum. Buford molds individuals in to who they are meant to be. Shout out to Dr. Bitterman for being the most caring and dedicated principal a person could dream of. The most bittersweet part of my experience has been watching how successful my classmates and I have been post graduation. If you haven't noticed by now, I am one thankful and PROUD alum. I end this raving review with one last cliche: Triple A Excellence forever!
