Buckley School

Tel: (212)535-8787
  • 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.
