Founded in 1933 by Dr. Isabelle Buckley, The Buckley School is one of the oldest co-educational day schools in Los Angeles. Our beautiful 18-acre campus, nestled away in a wooded canyon, is home to 810 students in Kindergarten through grade twelve.
The serenity of being on The Buckley School campus is unparalleled. The most serious distraction a student might face on campus is watching the deer descend the hillside in the search of an afternoon snack.
Students are safe—physically and emotionally—to simply focus on being students. Visitors to our campus are immediately struck by the close-knit nature of the Buckley community, characterized by the warmth, friendliness and enthusiasm of students, faculty and parents.
Yet blended seamlessly into these comforting confines of the Santa Monica Mountains is an exciting educational community with new facilities, which offer the most advanced educational technology. Last year, the school community enjoyed the new Academic and Performing Arts Building (pictured above) while the new Mathematics and Science Building opens for the start of the 2013-2014 school year. These spaces include: state-of-the art music, theater, dance and art classrooms, blackbox theatre, journalism classroom, student technology center, digital arts and music center, and science classrooms with prep areas for labs. The campus also features ample playing fields, an indoor pool, and weight room facility. Come visit us to experience The Buckley School for yourself.
