Michael Jackson's Kids Could Turn Preppy

8/23/2009 6:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The home schoolin' days may be over for MJ's kids -- we've learned Katherine Jackson is "seriously considering" sending the golden children to one of the most elite private schools in L.A.



Family sources tell us the Jackson matriarch is talking about enrolling Michael Jr., Paris, and Prince in the Buckley School -- the same place Tito's three kids attended, as well as several other members of the Jackson clan. In fact, Tito's deceased wife, Dee Dee, once served as president of the Buckley Parent's Association.

Our sources say the family has talked to friends and school reps about enrolling the kids.

We're told Grandma Katherine used to show up for different events at the school and just loves the place -- great education, it's close to their Encino home, and it's heavily protected.

Problem is ... the school ain't so easy to get into. Plus, classes start really soon -- as in this Wednesday -- and it's unclear if the kids have even applied yet.

One cautionary note: Paris Hilton attended Buckley as well as ... (gulp) ... Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian.

Stop Milking his name    

unless Katherine doesn't want to spend the kids' allowance...on them. Is she trying to save money from the kids' allowance to funnel to Joe & the brothers?

Those children are very well educated and bright.

I am happy to hear about a secular school rather than a Jehovah's Witness school.

Good luck kids. May the paps and press leave you alone for several years.

Next year, not this year. It's too soon and these kids don't know how some people feel about their father. They've lived a pretty sheltered life. They obviously aren't spoiled, and are probably much better educated than their peers, but they're lacking world experience. Kids can be so horribly mean, it would crush these kids. Give them a chance to adapt.

Can you imagine just how much fodder has been provided by the press about birth fathers, etc. Debbie Rowe, etc. Oh my God, this would be a very bad move. Heaven help these kids. Kathryn, just give it up and pay for the tutor for a while.

Well, why not? Michael Jackson went to prep school (Montclair College Prep). Everyone who has ever encountered the children describes them as extremely intelligent, broadly educated, and poised beyond their years.

I agree with Phyl. I think that is too soon to send these kids to school. Maybe they want to go, but the other kids could be very mean with MJ's children.
These kids, in despite of home schooling, travelled around the world and lived in another countries. It is a nice life experience that their father could give to them.
I don't know many things about them, but as the older ones are tweens, I think that perhaps they have the wish of go to a real school and be close to different types of kids, kids whom are not related to them and make friends for themselves.
But, beyond all these things, I wish they could have a life as normal as possible and be happy and healthy.

Private school could be inevitable but now it could be too soon. However Katherine knows what's best for the children. Ridiculous for those who think the children can't even read. They have much more between their ears than you stupid blogger.

Maybe another year should pass before they enter a school? Eventually the protection has to stop though, and it will be a tremendous shock to them. They are brought up in love, sheltered from most of the evil of the world, not knowing what can happen in a classroom. They are probably well schooled, because MJ was an avid reader and intelligent, and he read to them and bought them books.

Those kids should have been going to that school all along. MJ locked them away and probably made them half-crazy. They should get to live the life of a normal kid, and that means going to school.
