Welcome to Van Buren Middle School!

 

Welcome to Van Buren Middle School!  We are eager to begin another exciting and challenging year at VBMS. It is my privilege to work with such great students and a caring and professional team, where student growth is always our number one priority.

 

As a member of the Van Buren school community you will encounter:

 

Dedicated and Passionate Staff

We are lucky to have a staff that is passionate about middle childhood education.  The people who choose to work in middle schools do so for a reason. They love being a part of the learning process with young men and women as they develop their minds and skills throughout the course of the school year.  

 

Supportive Families  and Community

Our families and community members understand the value of a strong education and have continued to support Van Buren and the Kettering City Schools in several capacities.  We are fortunate to be able to count on our families and community as partners in the educational process.

 

Diverse and Enriching Curriculum

Van Buren offers several opportunities for students starting with a challenging core curriculum.  Our teachers strive to reach each and every student at their individual level and move them forward academically.  We strive to inspire each students’ love of learning and prepare them for future opportunities. Van Buren offers a variety of courses to meet the interests of multiple students including everything from from technology/ STEM to a world-class music program.

 

Firebird Pride

Most importantly, 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.
