The Buckley School Reviews

Having attended The Buckley School since kindergarten, I have seen it at its best and at its worst. The Lower School is certainly a friendly, loving, and nurturing environment. Teachers are incredibly considerate, prioritizing learning and kindness above all else.

Middle and High School, too, was a pretty special experience. While the thought of middle school sends shivers down most kids' spines, middle school at The Buckley School could not be a more accepting space. Teachers grant their students independence through creative research projects and complex team building assignments. Other important aspects of student growth are also explored, such as classes in student diversity and inclusion.

I am a lifer, and the Buckley School has been my second home for almost a decade. In my opinion, my school is very academically rigorous and has a great curriculum. My entire environment has been nothing but encouraging and self-esteem boosting. Throughout my years here, I have seen myself grow from a tiny, unconfident little girl to the much more confident and knowlegeable person I am now. I'd highly recommend any student to go here if they are looking to improve their academic standards and self confidence.
I'm having a Great experience so far, great student body and lots of fun activities, academical excellent, loving and able teachers, overall great staff (academic and nonacademic). But as we all know, nothing is perfect,Buckley isn't as diverse as it should be,we still have minority students,in my opinion,the student body should be equal. I hope Buckley improves diverse wise.
