Profile:

The Buckeye Middle School staff believes that each student deserves the individual attention and aid necessary to continue his or her learning process. We recognize that a child’s education rests not only in the knowledge they acquire, but also in the character they develop. In order to live in today’s society, it is of the utmost importance that each child is taught to respect him or herself and others. In order to prepare each student to have 100% success, self-awareness, decision-making, personal responsibility, positive communication skills, and an understanding of each student’s place at school, the community and the world are vital for each student in order to succeed in our global community in the 21st century.



School Colors:

Black and Red



School Motto:

Every Student Every Day!



Vision Statement

Buckeye Middle School's vision is to ensure that each student is academically prepared for high school and a post secondary education along with having a career focus.
