Van Buren Public Schools


The Van Buren Public Schools district in Michigan consists of 7 schools, including 4 elementary schools, 2 middle schools, and 1 high school. The district serves a diverse student population with varying levels of academic performance and economic challenges.

Among the standout schools is Savage Road Elementary School, which has the highest performance on state assessments, with significantly higher proficiency rates in English Language Arts and Math compared to the district and state averages. The school also has the lowest chronic absenteeism rate and the second-best student-teacher ratio. Another notable school is Edgemont Elementary School, which has the best student-teacher ratio and the lowest percentage of free/reduced lunch recipients in the district.

However, the majority of schools in the district face significant challenges, including low graduation rates, high dropout rates, and chronically low performance on standardized tests. Chronic absenteeism is a major issue across the district, and the high percentages of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch indicate that the district serves a population with significant economic disadvantages. While Savage Road Elementary School stands out as a relatively high-performing school, the overall quality of education in the Van Buren Public Schools district is inconsistent, suggesting a need for comprehensive, data-driven interventions to improve educational outcomes for all students.
