Stacie Maggot is a true blessing to this school and any student she comes in contact with. She has such an amazing gift and we have been extremely blessed to have been in her class this year!

We have loved Buckner Fanning and our Pre-K 4 teacher Stacie Maggot has been absolutely phenomenal! Her love for teaching our children shines through in everything aspect of her classroom. My son will be so prepared for kindergarten and I will be forever grateful to her!

Kids are the center here, unlike many other schools where internal problems are large enough to lose focus. Teachers and staff are amazing, and the curriculum is balanced. BFMS but a smile on our son's face and with the learnings what else parents would want.

Develops character: Strongly agree

The school definitely addresses issues immediately if there is ever any problems. It is very rare to see problems between students at the school.

I truly love how the staff at Buckner Fanning have gone over and beyond to work with my kids, especially my daughters acrobatic schedule. Both my kids have been there since the beginning and have loved the school and have never once said they don't want to go to school. That says a lot for me as the parent! They have grown so much in academics and have had great school field trips every year! They will graduate from this school with pride!

Our children get individual attention when needed and a great education all while praising God.

I love that the class sizes are significantly smaller than those in public school and that the children receive a Christian education in addition to core curriculum. Small class sizes benefit the children tremendously because the teachers are able to spend more time meeting each child's specific needs. Unlike public school, children do not require as much time in core academic areas (because of those low numbers!), so the children are able to broaden their horizons by spending more time in specials. Local public school children are slighted by attending less than an hour per day of a very limited selection of Specials such as PE, Music, and Computers. Here, the children are exposed to at least two a day of PE, Art, Music, Drama, Gardening, Spanish, and Computers. This array of Special classes, combined with the core and Christian academics, creates an extremely balanced educational experience! The teachers at the school are highly qualified, certified teachers, many of whom are retirees from local public schools. The head of the school has an unbelievably positive reputation amongst educators and parents alike. You cannot get a better Head of School!

Very dedicated Principal Ms Newman with a great group of highly qualified and committed teachers in a small class setting. Strong Christian values based school

I am a parent of a student in Middle School. The curriculum is rigorous and challenging; but the teachers make each day fun, exciting, and engaging. I am in constant awe of the innovative teaching strategies that are used, and my son has certainly blossomed both academically and socially. The class sizes are small, which allow for more individualized attention. My son transferred from a public school, and was welcomed with open arms by both the teachers and students. The curriculum is advanced, but he easily acclimated to the new expectations due to the creative teaching strategies implemented by each of his teachers. The Christian education he is receiving is amazing, and I am thrilled to see how God is working in his life every day. I cannot praise this school enough! 5 +++ stars!!
