Buckingham Friends School Campus
Buckingham Friends School’s campus is located in the heart of beautiful central Bucks County, at the intersection of Routes 202 and 263 in Lahaska, Pennsylvania. The campus is shared with Buckingham Monthly Meeting of Friends.
The distinctive beauty of our 44 acre campus provides an ideal setting for both traditional classroom and outdoor experiential learning. Approximately 30 acres of the site are wooded with a series of marked trails throughout. The terrain slopes down to a man-made pond and fresh water streams. Time is given everyday for recess, explorations and outdoor activities including classes, social time, eating lunch outdoors, and even sledding, weather permitting.
Students take an active role in caring for their campus environment and engaging in environmentally friendly practices. Each Friday afternoon, children in the lower school work together to clean up their playground, recover the sandbox, stack the wood used for building, put away outdoor toys, and pick up trash. The Stewardship Committee, composed of students in grades three through eight, organizes campus recycling and cleanup efforts.
Institutionally, our Campus Master Plan emphasizes green building practices and seeks ways to use our woodlands as a model of environmental stewardship. Buckingham Friends School students learn to care for their own environment and understand the effects their local actions have in the world around them.
