"Buffalo Promise Neighborhood (BPN) is a unique public/private partnership seeking to improve academic performance at the neighborhood’s three schools – Buffalo Promise Neighborhood Children's Academy, Highgate Heights Elementary and Westminster Community Charter School – while revitalizing the surrounding community.
Through the collaboration and commitment of local leaders in education, business, community services, philanthropy, healthcare and government, Buffalo Promise Neighborhood is creating a sustainable model for neighborhood revitalization.
This initiative builds upon one of the city’s greatest educational success stories in recent years: the transformation of one of Buffalo’s lowest performing schools into the Westminster Community Charter School.
Buffalo Promise Neighborhood's vision is that all children and families have access to a continuum of cradle-to-career solutions centered on strong schools which promote academic achievement and healthy development. With the community’s support this neighborhood will once again become a thriving place for families to live, work and play."
