“Believe, Motivate, Succeed” is the mission of Buford Middle School. The primary focus of this mission is to serve all students and to have high expectations of the students, families, and staff members. We believe in every student and will motivate each one to be successful. This occurs by providing a differentiated curriculum that is designed to ensure that each child gains the knowledge, values, and skills necessary to become globally competitive, innovative problem solvers, responsible individuals, and productive citizens. This effort is not limited to our staff. We also enjoy the support and involvement of a unique and enthusiastic community. Buford students benefit from the better of two worlds. Our students have the advantages offered by a thriving metropolitan area, with all of its cultural and economic benefits, but also have the advantages that result from living in a small town in which strong community values are preserved.
