At Buena Park Junior High School , we believe that education is the shared responsibility and accountability of parents, staff, students, the local businesses, and the community. We believe all students can succeed and will meet and exceed standards in all content areas. Realizing that early adolescence is a process of experiencing great changes in physical, emotional, and intellectual growth, we encourage all students to reach their full potential. It is our goal to provide support and inspiration to all students in developing skills, attitudes, and the responsibility necessary to become productive citizens.
