Buena is a small town where everybody pretty much knows everybody. That is why as a community, we come together as one big family. The high school creates a very strong bond. If you want to see school spirit, just come to one of our football, soccer, or field hockey games. It is amazing how close we all are. One down fall is that we don't have much state funding, so the schools have outdated things and could use some repairs.

Buena is a rural community with many farms. The schools are better than surrounding districts, but funding from the state and federal government is limited. Property taxes are high. Recreational activities are limited.
It is a very small, friendly town. The school systems are great, I've had an overall positive experience living here.
