Buckingham Elementary

Buckingham Elementary School’s mission statement:

The Buckingham community is working together to create a safe and nurturing environment that recognizes the unique learning styles of each student. We are encouraging social responsibility and life long learning.

School Philosophy

The staff, students and parents of Buckingham School are working together to create a safe environment. We believe that children must feel emotionally and physically secure to fully participate in active learning.

We strive to nurture the whole child and recognize their individual needs. The unique learning style of each child is recognized and developed through a variety of experiences. We practice and model consistency, fairness and respect in order to develop social responsibility.

Our goal is to encourage our community to value life long learning.

From the Principal’s Message

At Buckingham we go out of our way to provide students with a safe and caring learning environment, while still setting high standards for intellectual, physical, aesthetic, and social development.  We offer various opportunities to develop critical thinking skills; a life-long enjoyment of learning, and an appreciation of an active and healthy lifestyle.
