Buckley School

Tel: (212)535-8787
Grades: K - 9 | 372 students
The goals of a Buckley education are that every boy learn fundamental skills, gain self-confidence through disciplined thought and action, develop personal integrity and respect for others, and discover the joy of learning and the satisfaction of pursuing excellence.
Having high standards, pursuing excellence, exhibiting concern for each child and maintaining the level of student engagement are goals of a first-rate faculty.
This is certainly the case here at Buckley where we support our colleagues in their development as professionals and in their critical work with our students.
In addition to exceptional teachers, what makes Buckley truly special is our focus on the development of the whole boy.
We require boys to participate in all areas of school life, engaging the mind, body and spirit.
The moral development of the boys is also a chief concern.
Each year our boys are exposed to programs that address such topics as decision-making and accountability.
Buckley is a truly unique school, which, while proud of its traditions, is well positioned to embrace the challenges of the twenty-first century.
