What do Blair, George School, Germantown Academy, Hun, La Salle College High School, Lawrenceville, Pennington, Solebury – and Central Bucks, Council Rock, and New Hope-Solebury – and other secondary schools all have in common?
They all want students from Buckingham Friends School to enroll and contribute to the quality of their educational environment and community next year.
It is clear to me that the greatest evidence of our outcomes, and the source of our pride in Buckingham Friends School, is found in our students. Smart, engaged, capable, and prepared – each has met with success and achievement in the classroom, in arts studios and ensembles, on our teams, as community leaders, and as supportive and involved classmates and frtiends. As individuals, each has found their voice, approached learning and life with integrity, acquired the skill of being a self-advocate, and has a good understanding of who they are and what they want to pursue. Because each of our students has experienced how they are a part of a larger group experience, each understands the value of community – a literacy that is more important and valued today than ever. I could not be prouder of our graduates, both in the breadth of what they can do AND in who they are. I am confident in each student’s potential to flourish and meaningfully contribute to their next school environment and beyond.
And, this information about NAIS (National Association of Independent Schools) graduates arrived a few years ago, providing further data about the outcomes of a BFS education (BFS has been a NAIS member school for many years).

What are “independent” schools? Independent schools are private, nonprofit schools that serve students in prekindergarten, elementary, middle and/or high school. These schools are governed by independent boards of trustees and each school has a unique mission and culture.
