The Buckley School

3900 Stansbury Ave, Sherman Oaks, CA 91423

Isabelle Buckley, author of A Guide to a Child's World and College Begins at Two, founded this school. Dr. Buckley's ideas, which were influenced by her observation of educational systems while living abroad, call for a balance between the academic demands of prewar French schools and the athletic, arts and character programs of other European systems. Situated on an 18-acre campus, Buckley adheres to the beliefs of its founder in placing equal emphasis on academic training, creative self-expression, physical education and moral education. The school conducts a rigorous liberal arts program that features Advanced Placement courses in most disciplines. A particularly strong arts curriculum, which commences with integrated art across the curriculum in the lower school, incorporates artist visits at all grade levels. Upper school students participate in an international exchange program and outdoor education. Community service is part of Buckley's program at all grade levels. In the lower school (grades K-5), service is integrated into the curriculum, while boys and girls in the middle school (grades 6-8) engage in formal projects. Students in grades 9-12 perform at least 20 hours of required community service each year.
