  • The Buckley School is a wonderful school with an enjoyable learning envirement. It is located on a mountain as children locally spot deer roaming on the mountain side. Buckley continues to surprise me and keeps my students exercised while having a knowlegable head. The teachers are warmhearted and kind with a great sense of humor. It is one of the country's best schools over all. Wheather your painting in Art, or doing times tables in Math it is definetly a good choice to go to school in.

  • I go to the Buckley School and the first time I came in the decoraded door of 3rd Grade I made a friend real fast. I love Buckley and think that every kid should get a chance to go on their fantastic field tips and learn about the electric currents. My favorite classes are Art, Reading Workshop, and Science. I'm going into 5th Grade now and I'm still loving it the fun but educational things we do together as a class.

  • This school is very educational by it's fun teaching methods and it's enjoyable Phisical Exercieses. The teachers are warmhearted and kind with a good sense of humor. The envirment is very beautiful since it's on the mountain . Children localy see deer running on the mountain side. This school teaches children respect, honesty, self reliance, and kindness. The Art program is very creative while the Science team studys about wildlife and the earth. Buckley is one of the top schools in the country and is the best school my child has ever gone to.
