Abernathy Elementary vs. Buckman?

August 07, 2010

Hi Mamas,

We have two young children and live in SE. Our oldest will start kindergarten in 2011 -- plenty of time, but starting to think about it. Does anyone have any experiences/opinions to share about Abernathy (which is our neighborhood school) vs. Buckman?

Thanks!

Starting Kindergarten at Buckman Next Year

May 08, 2009

My son Nicholas is starting school at Buckman and I thought it would be excellent to arrange for playdates with others who are starting there as well.    Let me know and we can set it up!

Kindergarten Round Up & Tour Dates: Buckman Elementary 2008

February 01, 2008

Thanks to Sarah for sending us this info.  Mark your calendar!

Buckman is an Arts Focus Elementary school open to students from across the PPS school district , as well as an inner SE neighborhood school. Buckman offers arts-integrated education. This means that while providing students with a strong academic base, the teachers work to nurture the whole child—intellectual, emotional, social, and physical. Staff use a multiple intelligence approach, working with and inspiring students' linguistic, logical-mathematical, musical, body-kinetic, spatial, interpersonal, and intrapersonal intelligences. This allows students to make real, immediate and personal connections to academic subject matter.

Buckman Tour Dates:
Tuesdays, February 5, 12, 19, and 26 and March 4
9:00 am and 1:15 pm
Call 503-916-6230 to reserve a spot.
