Buckley was founded in 1923 and opened the doors of its first building in Great Neck to a class of twenty-three children. In 1955, as the school's enrollment continued to increase, Buckley moved to its current location in the Village of North Hills in Roslyn.[1] It is operated on a not-for-profit basis by an appointed twenty-two-member Board of Trustees. It is chartered by the Board of Regents of the University of the State of New York. The school is accredited by the New York State Association of Independent Schools and is a member of the National Association of Independent Schools.[2] Contents 1 The campus 2 Traditions 2.1 Athletics 3 Pop culture 4 Notable alumni 5 Notable faculty 6 References 7 External links The campus Buckley resides on a 25-acre (100,000 m2) campus which includes three athletic fields, tennis courts, and a playground. The building houses all the classrooms, two science labs, two computer labs, an art studio, a woodshop, and three gymnasiums. The recently-completed Hagedorn Library Learning Center[3] contains over 16,000 volumes and is used by students starting in nursery school. There are also four swimming pools, which are only open in the summer during Buckley Camp,[4] and a pond. The land the school occupies was once part of the farm owned by Isaac Underhill Willets. Traditions Buckley maintains a number of traditions. Every 8th grader designs and carves a square foot wooden plaque that is mounted in the hallways of the school. These plaques contain the name and graduation year of the student and are present throughout the school dating as far back as 1927.[5] Students design and create each plaque individually resulting in a diverse collection. There are annual 8th grade and 3rd grade plays and every year the 1st graders perform The Nutcracker ballet. The school holds an annual fall fair in October which began in 1973. Athletics Red-Blue Field Day at the end of the year each spring is where the school's two "red" and "blue" teams compete. This tradition started in 1938 and as of 2008 the Red team is leading 38 to 33.[6][7] Student records on field day are kept, the oldest being from 1981.[8][dead link] Pop culture Some scenes in School of Rock, such as those in the cafeteria and the teacher's lounge (Room One), were filmed at Buckley.[9] Notable alumni Barbara Cooney, children's author [10] Melissa Errico, actress[11][dead link] Julian Lombardi, computer science professor at Duke University[citation needed] John McEnroe, former World No. 1 professional tennis player[12] Patrick McEnroe, professional tennis player[11][dead link] Gregory Raposo, pop singer, formerly a member of teen boy band Dream Street[citation needed] Elias Roman, entrepreneur, founder of Amie Street[citation needed] Amber Scott, former child actress (Maggie Banning in Hook)[citation needed] Notable faculty Roby Young, former captain of the Israel national football team[13][14][15] References ^ Buckley Country Day: The Campaign for Leadership ^ Buckley Country Day: Mission & Values ^ Hagedorn Library Learning Center ^ Buckley Camp ^ Buckley Country Day School - The Hagedorn Library Learning Center ^ Buckley Country Day: Red & Blue Teams ^ Buckley Country Day: Field Day Records ^ Buckley Country Day | Field Day[dead link] ^ School of Rock, The : About The Production ^ www.buckleycountryday.com/uploaded/pdfs/Parent_Handbook_2008-2009.pdf ^ a b Buckley Country Day: Alumni News Winter 2007-08[dead link] ^ http://www.celebrityprepschools.com/part4.htm Search for McEnroe ^ Buckley Country Day | Faculty & Staff ^ Buckley Country Day Summer | Assistant Camp Director ^ Queens College Athletics External links Wikimedia Commons has media related to: Buckley Country Day School Buckley homepage Hagedorn Library Learning Center Buckley Camp
