*Home school is now a thing of the past for Michael Jackson’s two eldest kids.

Prince Michael, 13, and Paris, 12, started Wednesday at The Buckley School in the San Fernando Valley, described by TMZ as one of the most exclusive private schools in the country.

Family sources tell the website that Prince wanted to go to Buckley to have “a social experience.” Initially, Paris was reluctant but changed her mind.

Michael’s youngest child, 8-year-old Blanket, will remain home schooled for now. His grandma Katherine Jackson feels he’s too young to venture out, TMZ reported.

Other famous Buckley School alums include Matthew Perry, Alyssa Milano, Nicole Richie, Nicollette Sheridan, Laura Dern, Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian.
