About Us


Welcome to the Buffalo School District RE-4J website. This is your source for all things happening at Merino Schools. This continuously updated site is truly a work in progress. Merino, Colorado, in Logan county, located on HWY 6, is 71 miles E of Greeley, Colorado (center to center) and 94 miles NE of Aurora, Colorado.

We are proud of the rich tradition and heritage of the Buffalo School District and community. Our schools are home to approximately 318 students K-12th grade. The school provides beautiful facilities, rich athletic programs, very successful and nationally recognized vocational programs, concurrent enrollment opportunities, and an academic rigor, which is matched by few.
