The motto at the Buckley School is Dare to be brilliant, creative
Thats not hard for 14-year old Paris Jackson. Its in her bloodlines. Jackson is the daughter of the late King of Pop, Michael. Shes also a cheerleader at Buckley.
When the Griffins won their first CIF championship in school history last Saturday, in a 54-46 over San Luis Obispo Mission Prep, Jackson was front and center cheering on the team to history.
Jackson, who has over one million followers on Twitter, tweeted a picture taken of her by MaxPreps at the game with the caption lol this may just be the best picture ever.
Like her father, she has shown an interest in music, tweeting pictures of herself playing the bass and the ukulele.
Buckley is an independent K-12 school with an enrollment of 790 students. 319 of those students are in the Upper School or grades 9-12. The tuition and fees for students in grades 6-12 is just over of 36,000 a year.
It is against school policy to confirm the enrollment of any student or the type of student Buckley targets.
It is an independent school and there is an application process that you have to go through, a school spokesperson said.
On the court, Buckley (22-6) was able to win its first title in school history as a No. 4 seed in Division 5AA. As a result it received a No. 2 seed in the state tournament.
Itll host Escondido Calvin Christian in Wednesdays first round in a game to be played at Birmingham High School.
Im so excited for our community, head coach Mike Hamilton told the schools website. They are the reason we won CIF. Everyone has been so supportive and kind. We have been feeding off of their energy for several games now. Our fans, faculty and staff are continuing to carry us across the finish line.
