Buxton School was founded as—and remains—a school in the progressive tradition. The school acknowledges and embraces the fact that young people are always learning, and that they learn most effectively and immediately from lived experience. Therefore, our students are challenged to contribute to lively class discussion, they’re encouraged to immerse themselves in creative pursuits, and they are expected to live a fully conscious, responsible life in the context of a receptive and responsive community. Life lessons about the power of one’s contribution, the effect of one’s actions, and the depth of one’s commitment are a natural and inevitable outcome of our approach. Students are at the heart of a Buxton education, and they can feel their importance and effect in every aspect of our shared lives.
