Buxton School

For over 80 years, Buxton has been educating students in the progressive tradition: We believe that all people learn best by doing, and that experience is the most powerful teacher of all. To that end, students are engaged, inspired, and nurtured in all aspects of their intellectual, artistic, and social lives in the context of a small, egalitarian community. At Buxton, students are challenged to participate fully and meaningfully in their academic pursuits; called to create an authentic intellectual culture in the classroom; encouraged to immerse themselves in creative activity; and expected to live a conscious, responsible life in the context of a receptive and responsive community.
