Welcome to Van Buren Middle School!

We have an amazing student body! Middle school years are often a turning point in children’s lives, so at Van Buren we strive to live by three words:  Respect, Responsibility, and Safety.

Our students work daily to excel with their academic and social growth. The majority of our students are also involved with clubs, activities, and/or athletics, keeping Firebird Pride alive.

 It is truly the students that make this place such a great learning environment.

We look forward to working in partnership with you to provide all of our students with an outstanding middle school experience in a safe and nurturing school environment.
