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).
