    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.

    Buckley is a place like no other. We have a child in their Early Childhood, and thus far the experience has been nothing but outstanding. The admissions process was warming and very much a chance to interview the school. Again, as of now, they have delivered on everything we heard when we asked our questions. Our child’s teachers are very communicative, open and available and it’s made this entry into education seamless. The program is what we call “hidden academics.” Our child is Seemingly having fun while learning. They also have a very diverse program that includes music, art, and “core subjects,” without pressure as it’s early childhood. Our child looks forward to attending school every day!
    My wife and I are the parents of two Buckley graduates and one soon to be. There is no doubt in our minds, that their Buckley education is the most lasting and meaningful gift we could ever have given them. We take comfort in knowing that they have grown up in a school community where it was good to be a child and know that people cared for one another; a school community where they were expected to put effort into their work and be engaged with their learning, think for themselves and develop independence and agency, cherish values aligned with our own family values, and believe enough in themselves to achieve anything they set their minds to doing. One teacher after another, and all the Buckley staff and administration, challenged them to be their very best selves, enjoy their successes, and learn from their mistakes. They were always made to feel loved and respected. As parents, we wish we had more children to give this gift to and hope to one day be Buckley grandparents!
