Buckner Fanning School at Mission Springs

Tel: (210)721-4700
Grades: PK-12 | 245 students
It is my privilege to welcome you to the Buckner Fanning School at Mission Springs (BFSMS) where we are committed to an exemplary Christian and academic education.
BFSMS is a fully accredited school and we are also a visitation Core Knowledge school.
Core Knowledge is a very rich and exciting curriculum that gives teachers the opportunity to immerse students in a body of knowledge that will enrich their lives both now and in the future.
One of my favorite verses in the Bible is Jeremiah 29:11, "For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." I believe that many great days await those of us who are blessed to be a part of this school. I am excited to be on this journey with each of you as we experience God's plan for us individually and collectively.
Sharon Newman, Head of School.
