From my experiences at Buffalo academy of science starting high school for the first time I was kind of nervous because it something new and never knew what to expect. Throughout my years at Buffalo academy of science there where different experiences I got to go through good and bad but that happens to every student that goes through high school, all in all the education system is very good at Buffalo academy of science gives you the complete college experience with the many college classes they offer.
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!
