West Buffalo Charter School

Our Mission

West Buffalo Charter School provides a rigorous and highly differentiated curriculum for students K-8, focused on high academic standards while also providing high-interest and enrichment opportunities including music, art, technology and sports. This is all done through small class sizes with two teachers in every classroom (K-5), a focus on positive and respectful relationships and high expectations for individual success. WBCS offers a highly successful ENL program and two multi-age self-contained classrooms to enhance our robust special education program. In short, WBCS is a place where diversity is celebrated, individual differences are accepted, and student success is maximized.
