Van Buren County has two pre-schools, one elementary school, one middle school, and one high school. Van Buren County School System has a unique situation where Early Bird Pre-School, Spencer Elementary, and Van Buren County High are all housed on one campus. We are fortunate to have another pre-school, UCHRA, Van Buren County Head Start located in our county.  We celebrate the fact that we are a small school system. We believe that knowing our kids can and does make a difference in every aspect of their education.
