My attendance at Buckingham has been an overwhelmingly positive experience for me. The staff and administration are dedicated to the success and well-being of students and the campus provides a very unique culture and community that has benefited me greatly. There is a deep connection between teachers and students, and teachers have office hours and make a major effort to better the lives of their students. There are many opportunities for those who are struggling, and many extracurriculars offer unique experiences. Buckingham is very different than public school, which I have often found myself grateful for and I will forever remember my experiences.

Buckingham provides students with college prep material enabling students with a better knowledge as to what college work would be like. Students are encouraged to take local community college classes and it truly helps with getting a head start on your future college courses. I believe that my school is ideal for students who strive for a better education where teachers are offering help day to day and always encourage you to succeed!
Buckingham was a wild ride, having done online classes (which are called BCOL by administration) as well as in person classes, this school definitely helped me grow and prepare for college. The teachers are passionate about their job and are willing to work with each and every single person, regardless of what said person thinks about them. There isn't any drama, as everybody gets along very well and encourage a safe and positive campus.
