Buckingham Elementary School
Welcome to Buckingham S.T.E.M. Elementary School - home of the Broncos! At Buckingham, we strive to create S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) learning experiences, 21st Century skills, as well as a strong foundation in the basic skill areas of math, reading and writing. Buckingham is filled with enthusiastic students willing to think creatively and solve meaningful problems. The caring families and highly effective staff are committed to providing our students a quality education through an integrated S.T.E.M. focus.
Our school's educational program focuses on strong fundamentals in reading, writing and math. These core contents are enhanced by our integrated focus on S.T.E.M. Skills are developed and applied to real life problem solving tasks built upon the 4 C's (critical thinking, communication, collaboration, creativity) where our students apply the rigor of S.T.E.M. in order to understand and address meaningful issues and engage collaboratively to solve problems. Buckingham's highly effective staff are committed to providing our students a quality education, preparing them for the 21st Century.
We are constantly reflecting upon our practices in order to ensure that students are engaged, challenged and prepared with 21st Century Skills.
A unique component found at Buckingham is the focus on creating strong community partnerships to support the education of our students. We want to eliminate the walls between our school and our community to apply our knowledge. Professionals in our community bring expertise and experiences that are inspiring for students and support our school curriculum to further engage students.
Parents and families are the most critical part of our school success. Parents take an active role in providing an atmosphere that promotes education and quality work habits. There are a variety of ways families can support Buckingham students from becoming a classroom volunteer to being a member of our PTA - there are many ways to be involved and make a difference for our kids.
We are committed to creating innovative, safe and caring community of responsible learners who demonstrate determination to reach their full potential. We hope the information shared on our website will answer your questions and give you a glimpse into our unique and very special school.
