Welcome to Buckingham Friends
Please join me for a tour of our charming campus. Though the halls will be silent, we can peek into classrooms to imagine them alive with the voices of children engaged in their own education, the way school should be. It won’t be difficult to envision a dynamic, next-generation curriculum embedded in a values-based tradition.
Discover the difference Buckingham Friends School can make in your child’s social, emotional, and intellectual develoment.
Select spaces are still available in grades Kindergarten through 7th Grade.
Welcome to Buckingham Friends School where we inspire children to appreciate the forest through an understanding of the trees.
What? You thought this was a school! Why are we talking about trees?
We’re using this metaphor because at BFS students learn that through an appreciation of their relationship with, and place within the larger community they can come to an understanding of themselves and their rights and responsibilities within the community. They learn that the contribution of each individual to the success of the group is as essential in life as it is in project-based learning, where combined effort, creative ideas, and innovative problem solving lead to discovery, and the results of collaboration surpass what one individual could have accomplished alone.
At Buckingham Friends School we value our community as a main source of strength. We hold dear to our Quaker traditions to guide us as we boldly embrace the future and fulfill our mission to educate and prepare young people to engage confidently with their world, and “let their lives speak”.
BFS has so much to offer. Won’t you join us at our upcoming OPEN HOUSE, Saturday, April 30th at 10:00am, and DISCOVER Buckingham Friends School. We’ve only been here for 220 years! You’ll be glad you found us.
