Open Quote This school offers much more to the students as far as athletics, art, clubs, etc. My nieces have both attended Van Buren and involved in Track, Soccer, JROTC, plays and fine arts, Band, Math Competitions, etc. They have been much more challenged and involved in their school. My children have attended Mountainburg and the only things really focused on in Mountainburg were basketball, track, and football. I wish Mountainburg had more to offer. If your focus is on your child succeeding to be more than just a high school graduate then Van Buren is the best choice. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
