    "This weekend served as an incredible testament to the culture of the school and the community. Friday, the 8th grade celebrated their class play with an audience of alums that spanned four generations. Saturday, the school hosted its Spring Frolic, a time when families come together to spruce up the school grounds and serve as stewards to the community. The day continued with an Open House welcoming new families and alums, celebrating 220 years of excellence in education. The weekend ended with celebrations for those retiring after generations of service to the school. In the words of a former headmaster, "The school is poised to celebrate the next 220 years. It is an exciting time of renewed energy and positive leadership." Buckingham Friends is place that values traditions, community and legacy. I am so proud to be part of this wonderful place."

    "Sportsmanship, integrity, and respect are all part of the sporting experience at Buckingham Friends School. Sometimes, the competitive spirit becomes a part of the games, but the children are always well mannered and well behaved. No one likes to lose, but these are all learning experiences. To know how good it feels to win, you must also feel what it's like to not win. BFS teaches them how to deal with both gracefully."

    "Today my son played Buckingham Friends School in basketball. He was basically playing in a gym that had half of court and no out of bound lines. My son was number 23 and was getting intensely fouled and the referee did not call any fouls. My son retaliated with hard plays to him and the game was getting way out of hand. Number 21 and 23 of the Buckingham Friends team and my son were going back and forth with fouls that were not getting called. The parents of Buckingham Friends were saying derogatory remarks to my son which was very immature and disrespectful due to the fact Buckingham Friends is supposed to be a nice quaker school that have "very caring" parents. When the referee finally called a foul on my son the parents started to cheer which is completely disrespectful and should not be tolerated. The game got completely out of hand. By the second half the referee started calling nitty bitty fouls on what seemed to only be on our team and on my son who got fouled out in the 3rd quarter. The parents were completely rude to my son and I am very disappointed with the parents and the school for letting the kids basically play a rugby game and a court which is not playable."

    "This school is very challenged with bullying issues. While there are great teachers here, the problems outweigh any benefits. You are much better off with public school options for elementary school."

    "As a parent who has a son at BFS, I just want to say what a wonderful learning and personal environment the school provides. Our son has gone through K and up into 3rd grade and each of the principal teachers he's had has been extremely caring, inspiring, and supportive. Last year, some kid called my son names. As soon as we reported, the teacher and the school psychologist immediately got to work. They coached our son to use "I" statement to tell his friend that he did not like the teasing behavior. They had the two kids talk with each other. The other kid actually admitted how he was teased in his old school and did not feel good about being teased. The misbehavior stopped in several weeks. Conflict is part of real life. But BFS teachers are skillful and caring in helping kids to peacefully resolve conflicts. We have full confidence in the school."
