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.

Neverland - no, you do not see any fencing from the street but it is quite a distance from the street back to the house area. And there is a small 'house' near the front gate (guard shack) and there seems to always be someone there.

If MJ is in no way a "biological" parent/donor to these kids did he have to adopt them? How can these people just "make" kids to "give" to a friend? The so called mom was a vessel only-how can she have so little to do with her own biological children that she carried? Says a lot about her as a person-guess the money was good for both of them. IMO it's like selling your children. Sick really-glad they are being loved now.

Its time to back-off these kids and allow them to get back to the business of being children.

I hope the media respects the privacy of Prince and Paris Jackson during their schooltime.TMZ has no class insinuating that Michael Jackson's kids will be porn stars when they grow up.DISGUSTING!!!!!

Katherine and the family are doing right by these kids as far as I can see, and the kids seem like they want to be with the Jacksons. This is where they belong.

So true, Cathy. I truely believe MJ3 are in good hands at Hayvenhurst. Look at Blanket's "Star-Wars"-video or the pap-photos from Hawaii – the kids seem to have a lot of fun with their cousins. I'm sure they loved their daddy dearly (fear? nonsense1) and miss him terribly, but at least their new life has to offer some sort of distraction.
According to that I get so angry about all these demands to remove the cousins. Nobody of us has ever been to Hayvenhurst or asked MJ3 whether they actually wish that to happen. We just rely on the informations given by hungry tabloids. In my eyes it's an incredible arrogance to tell Katherine from an outside position what to do and not to do. Golly gosh, Randy's and Jermy's kids have been living at Hayvenhurst for so many years, has it ever crossed some peoples' minds that Katherine has known and cared for them since their first days on this earth, and that she probably feels a very close bond to them, too? She's their grandma as well as she is MJ3's, and she does her very best to embrace them all – in a situation where she herself has to mourn the most terrible loss of her life, her beloved child.

@Anne Kervran: Lol, go buy a pair of glasses.

As for the lurid innuendo used by TMZ, well it's no surprise considering the bunch of perverts and sick minds its "editorial" team is made of.

So long as something is disgusting and inappropriate, TMZ will do it, that's what they live off because that's what the creed of disturbed individuals who come here enjoy reading. They're happy to contemplate the potentially filthy and degrading outcome of something as innocent and great as 2 children attending school and making friends.

There's no need to tell TMZ to leave the kids alone, because they NEVER will. All you can to is not give them your hits and time. Hopefully there will come a time when gutter websites such as this one will be censored by governments.

Yeah I know, like that's ever going to happen...

I am against cencorship in general. But there have to be guidelines. And in my ideal world there would be strict laws against writing about children on sleazy tabloid sites, who to top it off in the same breath talk about sex videos!
The punishment should be self-combustion on the spot!

Hi Butterfly! You really ARE a butterfly, fluttering in and out again in a blink of an eye. :-)

And of course hi all other nice people here. You write wonderful posts, thanks.

Wonderful and they are adjusted and love the Jacksons. Blanket
can go to school when older. He's being homeschooled. But TMZ
why did you put in the last two sentences they were n't needed.
And you should n't have given the schools name and address.

He came to this earth - suffered during his childhood - gave all he had in his music to people all over the world - and was crucified by a pharisee.

I still can't get over that, aston. Not even after all these months. If somebody had told me so end of June 2009, I would not have believed it.
Crucified by a pharisee... a man who pretends to be a devouted Christian but was guided by hate and obsession.


Hi Siggisiss... (I'm bold enough to count myself to the nice people, LOL)
