Background Information

Buffalo is at a turning point. As a city we stand poised to realize a resurgence not seen in decades. Whether or not that renewed prosperity will be available to all residents, however, remains unclear. The new jobs and higher wages will require advanced degrees or training, but currently the majority of Buffalo's children attend under-performing schools. The achievement gaps between our children based on racial and socioeconomic differences remain large.  For these reasons, we need high quality, diverse schools for all students. Buffalo Commons offers all Buffalo's children the possibility of a world-class education.

Buffalo Commons Charter School prepares students to graduate from college and become skilled, engaged, and open-minded citizens of our democracy.  Buffalo Commons is committed to providing a diverse student body with excellent teachers, a rigorous interdisciplinary curriculum, and meaningful connections to the community.
