About Buxton School

Buxton is a small, progressive and diverse independent school located just a short walk or bike ride from Williams College, on a 100-acre campus adjacent to The Clark. With fewer than 100 students in grades 9-12, Buxton is able to provide a uniquely holistic and individualized learning experience. In addition to a college preparatory curriculum of academic courses, students at Buxton also learn through hands-on activities that establish and support the school community. In any given week, Buxton students can be found directing school plays, chopping and stacking wood for winter heating, planning and cooking weekend meals, and staging art shows featuring original painting, photography, and sculpture. This integrated approach to education informs all aspects of Buxton student life and academics, and provides a unique opportunity for those seeking to gain experience in a progressive school setting.

Mutual Aid-Activism Club- Interested in engaging the next generation of community leaders and voters? Buxton School is looking for an interested and energetic Williams student (or two) to work with this activism club as they tackle local, national, and international issues of importance.   This is a way for civic-minded leaders to create their own unique program which might include weekly speakers and discussions, community projects and outreach and social media literacy education. With a goal of motivating civic engagement for these soon-to-be-voters, your mentorship can play an important role in the broader mission of strengthening the future of our democracy.

Evening Tutoring: Buxton is seeking Williams students to serve as academic tutors during evening study halls which occur Sunday-Thursday evenings from 7-9 PM. Tutors needed specifically in the following areas:

  • Algebra 1 and 2, Geometry and Calculus-general homework support
  • French–someone to meet once a week or more with two highly motivated students who will be studying French independently. These meetings can occur in the evenings of during a shared time during the day–to be scheduled.
  • Academic support- someone to meet twice a week with a student with some learning differences who will need help in focusing and approaching homework in general. This can occur in the evening during study hall or on weekends.
