- Buckingham Browne & Nichols School, often referred to as BB&N, is a private day school on three campuses in Cambridge, Massachusetts, educating students from pre-Kindergarten (called "Beginners") to 12th grade. BB&N was established by the 1974 merger of two independent schools, Buckingham School, founded in 1889, and Browne & Nichols School, founded in 1883. The Upper School, grades 9-12, is located at 80 Gerry's Landing Road on the banks of the Charles River. The Middle School, grades 7-8, is on Sparks Street, and the Lower School, grades pre-K-6, is on Buckingham Street. Boston Magazine ranked BB&N #5 in a list of the top private high schools in greater Boston for 2009 and, in late 2007, the Wall Street Journal listed BB&N as one of the 50 best schools in the world for its success in preparing students to enter top American universities. BB&N received another kind of attention in 2006 when Forbes magazine found it to be the ninth most expensive private school in the country, the only day school in the top ten. The school has produced three of the 27 Presidential Scholars from Massachusetts since the inception of the program in 1964 and is a member of the G20 Schools group.
