Today I was at houghton just to stop and see my childrens (3) teachers informally. And to my amazement I was speaking to MS. Polimeni, my son Michaels teacher, and I was so impressed with the way the students show so much respect and love for the teacher. This is not only michaels teacher but the Majority of Teachers I have encountered during the 6+ years. The respect in the hall ways by the students, the attention Mrs Vandi gives as well as receives for students and parents alike. My kids are all doing fabulous it makes me proud to be a parent of houghton acadamy students and proud of my choice to tranfer my two younger kids into houghton
Houghton Academy is a great school with alot of dicipline and alot of learning. This school has improved alot over the past couple of years. It has been in the Buffalo News many times before and NY state considers it one of the best public schools in Buffalo. There is alot of diciline especially for the Jr. High(7&8)students. Theres no talking in the halls, no fooling around,always in a straight line. There are many after school programs available for the students and after that the after-school bus takes the kids home.'We strive to do our best and learning is our responsibility because knowledge is power' as our principal Ms. Vandi always says to us every morning!
