Buckley Education is a Certified Test Center for the SSAT Flex Test
(Secondary School Admission Test)
The time spent getting to know your students, to assess their needs as well as the academic possibilities, is invaluable. And as parents can attest, working with adolescents is complex and many facets need to be considered. These may include but are not limited to a review of objective and subjective records, insight and input from teachers, and additional information such as the strengths, interests, needs and potential of your student. The staff of Buckley Educational Group works closely with each family to determine the most appropriate educational setting.
Getting Started-Finding the Right High School
The team at Buckley understands completely how to tune-in, listen to, and put teenagers at ease. We meet them where they are and take them where they want to go. The process starts with:
Understanding Your Options for Students with Learning Differences
- A review of all academic records
- A consultation with the family and a one-on-one with the student
- A compilation of secondary school options for the family to review
- Placement testing support – SSAT, ISEE or HSPT Application support
- Advocacy for Individual Education Plans (IEPs) or 504 Plans
Schools Provide and Promote a Wide Variety of School Statistics – Why Do They Matter?
Educational systems maintain a sophisticated database of statistics. A range of unique qualities defines a school setting, and these data are an objective measure that provides a leveling factor. Often they are helpful for comparison purposes.

How Should We Evaluate Day and Boarding Educational Institutions?
School communities are developed both in and out of the academic environment. Day and Boarding Schools instill a strong value of community. With this in mind, families opt for a boarding environment for the all-inclusive feeling of academic, social and community settings. Day educational settings are typically structured from 8 AM – 3 PM with complementary activities offered outside the academic day. Deciding, as a family, between these two options is a very personal decision.
