HISTORY

The Henry Buckner School (HBS) was founded in 1974 under the leadership of

Reverend John Bryant. The school is named after Mr. Henry Buckner,

a founder of St. Paul AME Church.

 

On September 24, 1974, the doors of HBS officially opened to the public.

In 1982, Sabrina Brown Wilford and Henrietta Attles—the first African-American woman to serve on the Cambridge School Committee—worked successfully to have

HBS accredited by the Cambridge School System.

 

Today, HBS is a private school that caters to the well-being of students of

all cultures, all nationalities, all creeds. We provide infant and toddler care, pre-school,  after-school programming, and a exciting summer enrichment program. (SAE).
