Prince & Paris Jackson Leave Homeschooling

Prince & Paris Jackson Leave Homeschooling

Michael Jackson‘s eldest children are taking a big step.

TMZ reports that Prince, 13, and Paris, 12, are enrolled at one of the most exclusive private schools in the country after being homeschooled their entire life.

Family sources state that Prince wanted to have “a social experience.” Initially, Paris was reluctant to leave homeschooling, but has since changed her mind.

Little brother Blanket, 8, will remain in homeschooling as his grandmother Katherine Jackson feels he’s too young to venture out.

Among the alums at the San Fernando Valley school are Matthew Perry, Alyssa Milano, Nicole Richie, Nicollette Sheridan, Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian and Laura Dern.

Do you think this is a good move for the Jackson kids?

    Yes, I think all 3 should go. The 8 year old is well old enough to go as well.

    I think it’s great. My brothers home schooled their children for a while and were doing “okay” but it amazing the change when they enrolled them in school. They are more outgoing and talkative. They love having friends and activities they didn’t get at home.

    I think it’s a great idea. It gives them a chance to interact with kids their own age and socialize among their peers. I think Blanket should go too.

    what’ the definition of the “exclusive private school”? Probably not high standard of learning cause if Paris Hilton graduated… lol
    and being serious right now, it’s good for their social development ;)

    Lora – Sophia Richie does not go to to Buckley. She goes to another school in Los Angeles, along with her brother Miles.

    tkwe, paris hilton did NOT graduate from buckley and neither did any of the kardashian girls. they went for ELEMENTARY school. you should know that most buckley grads (and i mean those who actually graduate from the high school) go on to ivy league colleges. prince and paris’ cousin graduated 2 years ago, and now goes to Harvard. so, get your facts straight before you start posting mindless comments.

    It’s a really good idea for these kids to go to school and learn to be social and interact with their peers. I’m glad to hear this is happening. I think the younger child can wait another couple of years before enrolling. He seems shy and might be overwhelmed at his age.

    Buckley is good, but it’s not one of the best schools in the country. There are plenty of better schools out there (in the NE or elsewhere). Even kids from public inner-city schools get into Harvard, Yale, and Princeton, so to say some of the graduates (a small number per year) from Buckley go there, especially if some are legacy students who will get into those schools regardless of where they go, is not impressive to me. Anyway, I think it’s great that the two eldest are going to go to school. I think the youngest should too- eight is not too young at all.

    They’ve been going to school, and the youngest is as well – Prince and Paris are simply changing where it is they are schooled. I find it surprising that people still believe the myth that children who don’t attend brick and mortar schools aren’t socialized and don’t have access to the same activities as public/private school children. Time and again studies show that not only are children who enter into a formal school system more likely to be socially reserved, aggressive, depressed, as well as more likely to be significantly behind in their education compared to homeschooled peers, but children who spend at least their elementary years in the home environment are proven to be significantly more happy and productive in the decades following their education. Within the Jackson family alone you can see the difference: Michael’s children have proven themselves to be well spoken, well-behaved, intelligent young people, while their cousins are already getting into trouble and ordering weapons to use against each other. Hmm. Kancy’s brothers must have done an extremely poor job if their children were at all stunted because of homeschooling, which is very sad for those kids.

    The older two are at a good age to begin attending a private or public school, but that’s a wise grandmother keeping Blanket home for a bit longer.

      It’s not where you go to school that makes the person, it’s how you raise your children. Prince, Paris, and Blanket attended a standard school while they were living in Europe. It’s not like being in school is all new. I’m sure they love their cousins, but most children would grow weary of playing with the same people ALL THE TIME (especially that Spencer Malnick girl who keeps creating fake Myspace and Facebook accounts and posting pictures of Paris on the internet). Janet always said she wished she would have had a normal childhood like her nieces and nephews, with lots of friends from school (while on the road or working they were homeschooled), but she only had 2 friends and the other people hung around because “Michael Jackson” was her brother. Not everything about standard schools are bad and not everything about homeschooling is bad either, but let the kids go for the social experience if not anything else. I’m sure they’ll keep their tutors for extra help.

    It may be a bit of a shock at first for the children but once make friends I’m sure they will like school and they also have each other and cousins to help them.

    Your making so many assumptions here that
    “MAY OR MAY NOT BE TRUE” because you do not have ALL the FACTS.

    You state:
    “Buckley is NOT set up to deal with the level 642-436 of media attention or the onslaught of gawker curiosity”

    How could you have forseen all of this and how do you know the LEVEL OF PREPAREDNESS THIS SCHOOL HAS, IN L.A. WHERE THERE ARE SO MANY CELEBRITIES THAT HAVE ACTUALLY USED THIS SCHOOL, SUCH AS PMI-001 THE HILTON’S AND the KARDASHIANS (OJ made their Dad famous when they were in school years back)

    Especially after 911 when schools became labeled “soft targets”
    they will be taking the precautions and following the gov. guidelines. They have taken into consideration the size of this city and the type of 70-432 community it is in, for sure, and much, much, more.
