From Van Buren School District

The Van Buren School District is a tremendous source of “Pointer Pride” for the community. Known for its top-tier academics, & award-winning programs, VBSD provides students a premier educational experience designed to help them succeed in the classroom & beyond.

In addition to K-12, VBSD offers STEM, preschool, gifted & talented, special education, alternative education, & the River Valley Virtual Academy. VBSD has a wealth of AP & concurrent credit classes & partners with universities to help students earn certifications & associate degrees before graduating.

The commitment to excellence extends to extra-curriculars. In recent years, VBSD has captured state champion titles for band, soccer, wrestling, baseball, cheer & bowling.

Safety is also a top priority. VBSD was one of the state’s first districts to employ full-time School Resource Officers at every campus. Such partnerships exemplify the value of schools & community working together for the benefit of all stakeholders.
