Bucs is a great place! I can't say anything negative about the teachers. They're welcoming and really care for my child. I sent my son here because of all the great things I heard about it. This school will give you an update on how your child is doing based on data. Most schools I've been at don't break the curriculum down like Bucs! Great job, we love you!!!
My school is great at challenging my children to be successful. The teachers are supportive and the administration is always available and participating in the climate and culture of the school. I love it here!
Buffalo United Charter School (BUCS) is a great place for kids. The staff focuses on individualizing instruction to meet the needs of each child. The atmosphere is positive and the children are hard working. It is great to see the children develop independence as they spend time learning about their own needs. Kids that attend BUCS know their own goals and strive to meet them every day. The parents at BUCS are always visible and showing that they care about the education of their children. The parents are not just participants, but partners in education at BUCS. I am proud to be a part of a great community.
Buffalo United Charter school delivers qualityy education with teachers that are SUPER caring. We have parent/teacher conferences 2 times a year to show the progress of my child.
Buffalo United Charter School (BUCS) is a great school for kids. I like that they are one on one with the children and love the progess in my kids since they been going here,wouldn't choose no other school for them.
My children have attended Buffalo United Charter School for three years. We made the switch from a different charter school and couldn't be happier. The deans and the principal are reliable and communicate in every situation. The teachers uphold students to a high standard with behavior.
I'm a very involved parent in the school. I have had great experiences with the teachers in the building. My child brings home an agenda each night with important information such as important events, homework and behavior for the day. The line of communication is open among the teacher and I. Each day as I walk through the door of Buffalo United, I am greeted with familiar and friendly faces. I highly recommend this school!
Where to begin? This school offers an education that is not comparable to any other school within distance. Each day I drop my children off to school with full trust in the staff. We are greeted with teacher and other staff members opening up the car door. Not only do they ask, "How are you?" but also tell me to have a good day as I drive off. Because I am a working parent, I am notified by phone with important information. My child is enrolled in the drop in program where I pay a small fee to and pick my child up around 4:30pm. The education my child receives is wonderful. Thanks for the support BUCS!
My school is improving every year. My son has attended this school since kindergarten and is now in the 7th grade. He left for the 5th grade and that was a big mistake. Here he is challenged and I know what he is learning. The faculty are inviting and helpful.
The school isn't horrible. Is anyone listening? You need parent involvement in and outside of the classroom. The teachers are not magicians. The purpose is to compliment what you teach at home, what you have placed in your child when they entered the womb. Parents lets ask ourselves if we were our child's first teacher and the answer should be yes. Yes we need more diversity! Perhaps a few of the educators need a change in career or of the heart. We need a change on the administrative team and new board members. I have been blessed to have well qualified educators at BUCS and therefore I support the school.
Very poor educating ability and no information from educators on available community resourses for children.
My son attended BUCS 3rd grade this school year and will not be coming back in the fall. The school and the teaching staff are subpar. The kids spend more time being yelled at by teachers than actually being taught. It's more like a fulltime daycare for kids than an educational environment. I would advise any parent who is considering BUCS to look elsewhere.
I would give BUCS 1 star. The staff and education that the students receive is poor and far below average compared to the other WNY schools. My daughter has attended the 4th grade here and will be attending a private school next year. I agree with the previous reviewer that BUCS seems more useful as a daycare than an actual school system. I would not recommend this school to any parent.
I would not recommend BUCS to any parents that is serious about their child's education. This school has a problem with discipline which prohibits other children from having a proper learning enviornment. I will not send my child back to this school next year.
My children just started this year. So far, I am pleased. As an involved parent, I appreciate the fact that parents are welcome anytime, the office staff is very friendly, the principal is very welcoming, and the children seem to have a dignified approach in their conduct and uniform appearance. Unfortunately, there is no transportation, you must drop your children off and pick them up and they also provided a bus pass.
My youngest son is currently in 4th grade, and he is starting his 3rd year at BUCS. My older son attended there for 7th and 8th grade, and was accepted into Hutch Tech for high school. I love BUCS because of the high academic standards and caring staff, and because it is a safe and happy place. The students are taught on their level, so no matter where they're coming from, they will be given the opportunity to excel. NHA places a high value on morality as well, which supports my efforts to teach my kids to be good people. Ms. Messmer is a terrific principal. She knows how to be strict, but is kind and fair. Parents, teachers, and kids all like her.
When Buffalo United Charter School opened in 2003, our older daughter began 1st grade. She is finishing 6th grade now. Our younger daughter started in 2006 & completing 2nd grade next month. Why did we choose BUCS? We believed in NHA's positive attitude, high academic expectations & plan for 'challenging each child to achieve'. With a few twists in the road, school leadership has turned around positively with Ms. Mesmer, the new principal. Her dedication & diligence have been inspiring. The teachers my girls have had have been phenomenal!! I couldn't ask for more caring, involved professionals to educate & interact with my girls nearly 7 hours a day. The Librarian and Resource Rooms' Consultant Teachers are extremely valuable & treasured staff members. The office staff, even while extremely busy, are ALWAYS polite, willing to help and as efficient as possible. Realizing individual academic potential is their goal.
I love Buffalo United Charter School. Any dedicated parent who is truely active in their child's education, we love this school to. I have a good relationship with all of my daughters teachers, even the guidancew counselor the after school program coordinator. I
This school is awful. The teacher turnover rate is extremely high. The students dont want to be there and learning is the farthest thing from their mind. There is no respect from parents or students. Less than 20% of the teachers have been here for more than 2 years.
