Buckman Elementary School Reviews
My wife and I have three children at Buckman. We have been pleased with the education, training, and socialization they are receiving.
The teachers (and assistants) are attentive and engage the children in a variety of art-based ways. They also teach the basics and manage to challenge the more academically gifted children. Arts include drawing, performance art, singing, music, and more.
The administration is very well respected. Our first few years there, the inmates seemed to run the asylum, but Mr. Anderson is a first-class educator. He has brought focus and order even when it didn't win him popularity votes.
The Buckman community of families is very diverse in terms of color, marital status, sexual orientation, national origin, socio-economics, and many other ways. Having my children exposed to this gives them a broader life experience and prepares them for later life.
