Kindergarten-8th Grade Planning
Choosing an elementary school that fits a child's needs and a parent's vision is the essence of our work.
Finding the best educational setting sets a child's learning path in the right direction.
Schools uphold standards and admission practices reflect a school's mission. At Buckley Education, we deeply understand the range of educational optons available to our students and their families.
Options may include the local public school, local area independent school, local religious schools and boarding schools.
Considerations in making a school choice may include the available academic programs, the depth of parent involvement, and the range of support programs to meet your child’s needs.
No matter the complexity, Buckley Education understands the idiosyncrasies and unique characteristics of school options while also understanding family systems, students and the goal of finding the best-fit educational setting
As ethical education professionals, we embrace the school decision-making process seriously. Our methodology is to understand, through interview, observation, reports, conversations and both formal and informal assessment, how a child would best fit into the educational setting of choice.
A few of our steps:
- Review and analysis of academic records
- Review of all documentation provided
- Interview with parent(s)
- Observation and interview (if age appropriate) with child
- Strong understanding of parent’s educational goals
- Recommendation of schools
- Discussion of preparation for recommended schools
