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.
Tapestry is a expeditionary learning school. Tapestry has a compass with four main traits: Respect, Responsibility, Perseverance, and Integrity.I’ve been at Tapestry for 4 years and I can say it has definitely has been an amazing experience. I’ve learned so much and took so many classes I never even thought to take. I’ve taken physics which was a challenge but I’m happy i completed it. Tapestry is a school that challenges you because they know you can do it. No teacher at that school gives up on you. Students may settle for a 3.5 but your teacher will push you to re-mediate and get a 4. The one special thing about Tapestry is we have community meetings to catch up with each grade to see who’s doing good and any upcoming news. To me Tapestry was the perfect school for me. It's so smart but it's filled with big hearts.
