Michael Jackson's Kids Get Schooled

8/27/2010 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Two of Michael Jackson's kids have taken a big step -- leaving homeschool for one of the most exclusive private schools in the country.

Michael Jackson Kids School
TMZ has learned 13-year-old Prince and 12-year-old Paris started at The Buckley School in the San Fernando Valley on Wednesday.   

Family sources tell TMZ ... Prince wanted to go to Buckley to have "a social experience."  Initially, Paris was reluctant but changed her mind in a big way.

As for 8-year-old Blanket -- he's still going to be homeschooled. Katherine Jackson feels he's too young to venture out.

Among the alums -- Matthew Perry, Alyssa Milano, Nicole Richie, Nicollette Sheridan and Laura Dern.

By the way, some other grads even went on to do sex tapes and became famous -- Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian.

Can anyone look at the picture of Prince and not see that he looks just like Dr.Whatever-his-name-is,the dermatologist?The guy Debbie Rowe worked for? I'm not sure about Paris but Prince definitely resembles the "good" Doc.

Paris Hilton DID NOT graduate from that school. it is doubtful she even has a diploma - her parents have always been very vague about that. they would move her from school to school each time she got kicked out,

#85. Why do some people believe Paris was afraid of her Dad? I've seen the most wonderful pic taken on a plane, with Michael in reclining seat and his daughter nestling on his chest, looking very happy and content.

Hi Aston. It surprised me to hear that some idiots believe Paris was scared of MJ. Where did you hear this?
Personally I've noticed in every picture I've seen with them together, Paris is looking at her Dad with absolute love and devotion. It's nice to see - it warms the heart!

The more time they spend out of the enclave as "normal" kids, the better.

I don't understand why people make such a big deal about MJ trying to protect his children from the media. Other celebs do it and yet noone makes fun of them.TMZ you need to leave MJs children alone,this is NOT news.
