Two of my children have attended Tapestry, My oldest graduated and is now in her junior year at Buffalo State College. The other is excelling in the new elementary school. Attended this school is a blessing, the educators take the time with each child and are in communication with parents so we can all work together to help our children progress and achieve goals. The environment is welcoming and that is so important for students as well as parents, you want to know your child is content in their learning. And to simply put it... the school year is also kept full of fun of campus adventures! The high school too has a lot of off campus activities and has so many opportunities to explore your future choices and teachers are unbelievably helpful in guiding & preparing our children for college. As parents we opportunities to give input at community nights. Theres just a connection all around that gives you such peace from a parents point of view.

Tapestry Charter School is amazing, diverse, and is full of people that really care about you. The food is probably the best school lunch you will get in Buffalo, aside from the private schools. Because of Tapestry, I was accepted into the gifted math program at UB in sixth grade. It has taught me so much and I would never want to leave. Although some people don't see it, our teachers care about us even more than they care about themselves. The lower schoolers are super lucky to have their school counselor Ms. Molly, and the middle schoolers are the lucky I est people in the entire world to have our school counselor, probably my favorite person in the world, aside from my family, Ms. Bedell. She probably cares about her students more than anything and everything. Her students are her world.
My son has advanced so quickly from his UPK to now his Kindergarten year. His educators have pushed him to be his best and he comes home everyday explaining how he’s been successful that day and what he needs to work on to get better. We contemplated moving out to the suburbs because of the educational programs, we are not leaving our home now because of how confident we are that Tapestry K-5 will take him to the level to be the best him he can be.
