Buckley School 1

Buckley is terrible academically-sports eats up half of every day's schedule. If the school was ever any good it is no longer...mostly sibs and legs so not always the sharpest kids.

Buckley is a great school but not for everyone. The traditional part is that every boy: 1. must play a sport 2. must be in the school play each year 3. must participate in public speaking We find this GREAT bc it builds character and forms a cohesive student body that extends well into adulthood. Ask a 30 year old Buckley boy who is closest friends are and at least a few will be from his Buckley days. Also, the placement into high schools is one the best in the nation. Lastly, over 40% of alumni give each year back to the school, also one of the highest in the nation. that means the school did something right when they were students. Parents who are looking for a more progressive school might not like the structure here, but for those who do, their children thrive.

Buckley is an amazing school. It provides such a well-rounded education and is a great mix of the traditional and modern. My child is a brite and curious boy. Buckley has helped him to thrive, to achieve his full potential. There are not enough words in the English language to praise this school.

The Buckley School is a fantastic school and is very accepting of those who are not as smart as a regular kid like my son.

Buckley is a boy's school going through the 9th grade. It is very well run and has an excellent teaching staff. It also has a very fine student body. The school's only short-fall is that students must transfer at some point in order to finish high school. otherwise, it is excellent.
