Welcome to Van Buren!
Thank you for visiting our Van Buren Web Page! My name is Charlene Amarante and I am the Assistant Principal at Van Buren School. This is my 1st year as a member of our administrative team and I look forward to each additional day I am here!
Before becoming the Assistant Principal, I had the pleasure of enjoying the role of an elementary teacher and a program specialist. Now, as a member of the Van Buren family, I am proud to be a member of a team that focuses on the whole child, not only through academics, but also socially and emotionally. In my vision of student learning, I do my best to ensure that all students have the opportunity to actively participate in challenging and engaging experiences that help them become productive, responsible citizens. In order for this to be a success, we need open communication. Please know that I am here for everyone and don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or celebrations you might like to share.
