||Buxton School (Williamstown, MA)
||The curriculum at this boarding school is broad and demanding, offering a combination of traditional subjects, courses in the arts, and some studies rarely encountered before college. Courses, activities, and community life all contain vital potential for growth, so individual course programs allow for a mixture of academic and nonacademic pursuits.

I also currently attend Buxton, and have not been happy with my experience at this school. Many of my favorite teachers are getting close to retiring. It feels like the school seems to put the students as their last priority giving them as few resources as possible.

I currently go to Buxton, and I disagree that this is a good school for talented students. While there are a handful of intelligent kids, most of whom dislike the school, and most of the students are remedial, ending up at Buxton after doing poorly at old schools, being caught doing drugs, or getting expelled from their prior school. I do not recommend Buxton for anyone serious about wanting to learn.
