Administration & Physical Education

Co-founder and Owner Tom Buckett continues as head of Administration & Physical Education at Mountain Peak Private School. He also serves as the Business Manager, and Admissions Director. Tom is very proud that Mountain Peak continues to offer daily physical education classes, knowing the benefits it offers our students, both physically and academically. He graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Administrative Management. By day, a corporate worker in the aerospace and disc drive industries for many years, Tom’s passion for coaching got him involved with his own children’s teams by coaching their sport’s teams on evenings and weekends. Beginning with Kindergarten basketball and baseball (both girls and boys), he has spent over 25 years coaching for the YMCA, Niwot Youth Sports, City of Longmont Recreation, Longmont Baseball League, Silver Creek High School, and Girls Fastpitch Association. Realizing how much he missed coaching the kids outside of school, Tom started a basketball program at the school and coached the teams at the local YMCA for 5 years before turning the program over to parent volunteers. A strong, male presence, Tom’s enthusiasm, integrity, and ability to connect with each child, continue to make him a valuable asset to the school.
