    This is our first year at Buckingham. Our son has really enjoyed a wonderful first school experience. The other comments are exactly correct. There is a lot of individual attention given. In the morning the halls are lined with smiling faces greeting students as they enter the building. Parent/ teacher communication is flawless. I could not be happier.

    Our daughters interest in the sciences and art has been nurtured while attending Buckingham. She has had wonderful field trip opportunities and a great amount of encouragement from her teachers. The school is bright welcoming and full of caring and compassionate teachers and staff.

    My son has been attending Buckingham Elementary since Pre-K and is now entering the 4th grade there. He has had wonderful teachers. If there is a problem I was able to contact each of them either at school or at home. They truly have your child's best interest at heart. ALL of the staff are wonderful people and great you with a smile and always remember your name. I will truly be sorry when he has to attend 5th grade at another school next year. His experience at Buckingham has been a positive one. I would definitely give this school 5 stars.

    When I walk down the halls of Buckingham Elementary with my son in the morning every teacher greets him and knows his name. I see artwork crowding the walls reports and projects are displayed everywhere. The principal or assistant principal is standing outside greeting the students and overseeing the drop offs. Happy children are hurrying to their rooms. The building sparkles. I think to myself 'This is what elementary school is all about.'
