This is a great school. The staff is amazing with dedicated teachers who go well above and beyond. The school has a very welcoming environment with well maintained facilities. The school provides many community outreach events which are well attended and supported.
Great atmosphere when you walk inside everyone is very helpful & kind small class sizes for kids to get great learning teachers take pride in their kids and are very caring.
the school needs lots of help it is a very poor place to have to send your kids but it is the law.
There is a lack of communication from staff to parents. Last year one of my children did something and had to go to the school counselor. When I went to the school and asked what happened (the school never contacted me about this) they wouldn t tell us initially we had to wait and get the principle involved. Last week while picking my children up early I hear a boy crying from the back office "Please let me know home my stomach really hurts. Please! In the car my daughter tearfully told me it was her friend a sweet little boy from the poorest family in town. My daughter insisted they never called the mom. After unsuccessfully trying to assure her that they had called his mom I called her myself. Well the school NEVER called his mom to tell her that her child was in the office for an hour sick and crying. The office staff was very upset with me. Superintendent saying "He wasn't sick he does this all the time. That is what I told the mother on the phone." The secretary stated "You just have to trust that we know what we are doing." Whether or not the child was really sick the parents should have known. How many other children have been left to cry in the office?
Small class sizes are one thing I like about our school.Parental involvement in classes and fundraisers is fantastic.
We have been to a variety of schools and thus far Buckley is the best. The class size is amazing. The teachers are the greatest - they really take time with the kids. One of my children is a special needs child and the teachers we have had always have worked with me. The
Buckley is a K-12 school that has vastly improved in the time I have attended. I started in kindergarten and I am currently in the ninth grade. We have had some great teachers through the years but because we cannot pay the salaries that some other local schools with more money. We keep restocking though by hiring good people and even better teachers. Also the atheletic program is very important at our school and we take pride in it.
I went here from 2nd to 9th grade and it has always remained in my memory as an ideal school. If it were possible I would love my own children to attend. There teachers never seemed to busy for extra help and you have the same teachers all through highschool so you really get to know them and what to expect. The children were all 'small town' and much more innocent than in the school I attended later (which had 3000 students!!) The values and education I recieved from this school as well as the dedication of the teachers and principle can never be underestimated. I love this school and it remains one of my best loved memories.
Buckley is a great community and constantly working to improve its school and community. The small size of the school and community allow for extra personal attention and involvement.
