Great teachers and academics. They are by far the best charter school in buffalo and really strive to help their students understand real world problems. Not only do they do their normal academics, but they teach the student things like how to manage money, right a check, get involved in your community, and being a responsible citizen! This schools academics is vigorous, but they still know how to let the kids have fun!

I have been working at BuffSci for 3 years and I love it! Great administration, and great faculty. They do many things for students to help them improve academically, get ready for college and be better citizens. The Regents exams passing rates, graduation rates and college acceptance rates are some of the proof of the good work being done here at BuffSci.
Buffalo academy has an excellent sense of community and a tangible commitment to the children and their academic and emotional success. The teachers sacrifice their time to teacher after school and on Saturdays if they need it!
