Buckley Opens New Math & Science Building
On Sept. 15, The Buckley School celebrated the opening of its new Mathematics and Science Building. The 14,000-square-foot building is home to 11 classrooms, including state-of-the-art laboratories for Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Life Science, and Physical Science equipped with technologies that rival many collegiate labs. The building also includes a Digital Arts and Music Center for interdisciplinary work in electronic music, digital art, and sound and video production.
“We wanted new spaces that could accommodate more collaboration and experiential learning,” says James Busby, head of school. “And we are so fortunate to be able to outfit the rooms with the most advanced equipment and technology. The ultimate goal is problem solving and we wanted to give students as many tools as possible to work on that skill.”
The new building is the school’s second in two years. The Academic and Performing Arts Building opened last fall bringing new spaces for dance, music, theater, the 6th grade, as well as a Student Technology Center. In addition, numerous classrooms and spaces around campus have been renovated, including the Lower School music room and computer lab, the Student Commons Café and outdoor seating area, and the band classroom.
Founded in 1933, Buckley is an intentionally small and deeply supportive learning environment nestled in the hills of Sherman Oaks. Every day our inspired faculty encourages students to reach new heights of learning, developing passionate learners who find success and happiness in school and in life.
The Buckley School is located at 3900 Stansbury Ave. in Sherman Oaks. For more information, visit buckley.org or call (818) 461-6719.
