Buckingham Browne & Nichols, a coeducational day school in Cambridge, Massachusetts, was established in 1974 by the merger of two independent schools, the Buckingham school and the Browne & Nichols school, founded respectively in 1889 and 1883.
Located on three separate campuses, we work as one school in the pursuit of excellence.
We celebrate the diversity of our community which enriches our daily experience.
At BB&N we foster intellectual curiosity, critical thinking and a deep concern and respect for others.
Our educational program, coordinated from beginners through grade twelve, provides a rigorous core curriculum, taught in flexible and innovative ways.
Students acquire the skills and discipline necessary for academic accomplishment and learn to reflect, take risks and to discover.
The curriculum is strengthened by our commitment to a comprehensive program in the arts and athletics.
In all of our experiences, both those within the school and those which use our urban location, we encourage self-reliance, knowledge of oneself and a capacity for leadership.
