The Buckley School Reviews

Buckley is great in resources and academics. When you need to see a teacher they're always free and open. The school provides an excellent academic curriculum. Sports are not as highly regarded by the old administration so the athletics are not the greatest. Diversity could be improved and there are a lot of resources and opportunities but overall the morale of the school has gone a bit down. If there were more involvement with the student body on campus there would probably be better student moral. It really prepares students for college, so no outside tutoring or counseling really needed.

Buckley’s teachers changed my life. Many are Ivy League educated PhDs, and most are passionate about teaching. Several teachers took extra time to both challenge me intellectually, but also to help me through difficult transitions.
The academic focus at Buckley was both incredible but also very tough to deal with. Socially, the students at Buckley are too entitled which is what prevented me from having the best possible time at Buckley.
