An independent city of about 6,500 citizens, Buena Vista boasts a beautiful setting along the scenic Maury River in Rockbridge County, Virginia. Bounded on the east by the Blue Ridge Mountains, Buena Vista is home to Southern Virginia University as well as several small industries. Interstates I-81 and I-64 conveniently put Roanoke, Staunton, Harrisonburg, Waynesboro, and Charlottesville within an hour’s drive.

The Buena Vista City Public School Division includes a contemporary high school, a middle school, and two elementary schools. A total enrollment of approximately 1,040 students enables the faculty to provide personal attention and outstanding instruction.  In January 2005, the State Department of Education recognized the system as a Distinguished Title I School Division.

It is the mission of Buena Vista City Public Schools to empower students to reach their fullest educational potentials, discover their strengths and develop visions for their futures.

Curricula and programs encompass core academic areas based on the Standards of Learning for Virginia Public Schools. All schools provide students with opportunities to participate in art, music, and physical education programs and have modern libraries and media centers.  At the high school level, students may choose from general education, career and technical education majors, or advanced academic courses that carry college level, dual-enrollment credit.
