    Buckley Country Day School has always been a wonderful place for my son and our family. My son started in nursery and is now in the seventh grade. The years have passed quickly, but the sense of community and friendships will last forever. Buckley has always been an outstanding school academically, and especially now during the challenging times of COVID-19. Buckley was prepared with virtual classrooms, providing continued learning and social connections for their students and reassurance for their parents. We appreciate all the teachers and staff who have always been so dedicated within the beautiful Buckley venue and who now continue to be dedicated from their homes. They have made the transition from in school learning to remote learning seamless, and we will always be grateful for being a part of this wonderful Buckley community!

    From the day we choose to transfer our kids to Buckley we have been exposed to wonderfully organized and professional team of teachers and administrators. The transition to virtual learning was seamless- the teachers have seen all their students EVERY day! At Buckley, no child will ever be left behind, teachers always listen and provide support at all levels. Students have full access to their teachers who are supportive, patient and advocate for them. The students all strive to be the best of themselves and they work hard and help each other.
    While the kids come from all parts of LI and Queens, they form strong bonds of friendships. The best decision I have ever made!
    Buckley is a great school! We have 3 children; 2 have already graduated from Buckley. We originally sought out Buckley because we were looking for a more rigorous curriculum than our home district offered. We stayed because our children received an exceptional education and much more. Beyond academics, Buckley's robust program encouraged them to experience athletics and the arts, and helped them develop self awareness and relationship building skills (key skills for life!).

    The teachers at Buckley are amazing. They really care about the students, do everything they can to help them succeed, and give them the confidence to reach for new challenges.

    Our children are performing at the top of their classes in high school because they were well prepared, have strong study skills, and have even been introduced to some of the content while at Buckley.

    We feel fortunate to have had this wonderful experience and highly recommend this school.
