    My daughter is a senior at Buxton transferring here in the 10th grade. The classes are small and intellectually stimulating. The teachers and support she has received have been exceptional. She is involved in many extracurricular activities and has had opportunities to try many new things. She is interested in the arts and her work has been received recognition from Mass MOCA for the past two years. The college advising is fantastic. My daughter has has blossomed here in every way. I could not be happier.

    My daughter is currently a senior at Buxton and I can't tell you what a wonderful experience it has been for her! This is her 3rd year and she has gained both confidence and purpose. What I love most about the school is that the teachers really get to know their students - not just academically but also intellectually and emotionally. They 'get' my kid!
