Buena High School is a high school in Sierra Vista, Arizona. It is the only high school in the Sierra Vista Unified School District.

The current school building was built in the early 1990s to accommodate an ever-expanding student enrollment and opened in the spring of the 1991-92 school year. The school was built to handle an enrollment of up to 2,500 students; it was over-capacity from its opening and filled to capacity through the late 2000s.


School Song
Cheer, cheer for our blue and white,
We play the game with all of our might.
Buena colts will never say die,
Just shake down the thunder from the sky.
Whether we win, or whether we lose,
Buena High Colts will not have the blues.
While our loyal fighting team goes marching to victory‐‐marching to victory!!!
