Buffalo City School District Reviews
There are a lot of diversity in buffalo schools. There are students from different cultures. The academic system and education is really good. All staffs and members are very responsible for their works. There are many clubs and organizations for students to participate. Besides studies, there are many sport opportunities for students to enjoy their day. There are also music class and some celebrations where students can show their various talents. Overall, buffalo schools are really good for all students.
I would like to see an improvement in safety across the board. With the state of America currently, safety measures such as metal detectors and armed security should be implemented across the district. Although security is poor, the teachers and the atmosphere given by them is outstanding, you feel comforted and welcome in most classes despite not having access to multiple AP/College Readiness courses. Overall I enjoyed my experience her but there is room for improvement. I enjoyed being around a very diverse group of students and I got to appreciate everyone for who they were, it didn't matter their background to me, I loved them for who they were.
I went to two city schools when I was younger. From pre-k to 4th grade, I went to Waterfront Elementary and from 5th- 8th grade I went to Discovery School #67. These schools were complete opposites. At Waterfront, I got to meet numerous people from different walks of life. Most of the students that attended were less unfortunate than others. Many students were very violent towards one another and towards adult figures. I was fine throughout my experience, but others were not. My parents made me transfer schools because Waterfront was changing over time and it was not for the better. Discovery School was in my neighbor. It was one of the better public schools in the district. The friends I had went there and many parents suggested it to my parents. I made great connections with people and still am in contact with faculty at the school.
