Reach Academy Charter: A New School; A New Way of Learning
There’s a new school opening up in September! REACH Academy Charter School located on Buffalo’s East Side is unlike any school that you’ve ever seen before. After seeing this school, you will wish you were back in kindergarten!!!!
There are a number of elements that make this school so very different. Unique Classroom Learning Environments Each classroom looks more like an exhibit out of a Children’s museum than a typical classroom! Kids spend five weeks in each classroom and will rotate around to 8 different rooms throughout the school year. Each room is modeled after a different theme such as a Farm, a Grocery Store, a Firehouse and a Construction Worksite. There’s even a Multi- Cultural Room, a Buffalo Community Room and a Dr. Seuss inspired room! Center Based Hands-On Learning also makes this school so unique. This means that students work in small groups and rotate throughout the classroom for learning that is hands-on.
The use of technology allows students to learn by solving problems and thinking critically and creatively on the computer in ways different than just pen and paper tasks in order to allow students to actively participate in their learning. uninterrupted with each group of students. Small Class Sizes Classes are capped at 20 and have two adults in each room most of the day. This allows teachers to build strong relationships with their students and make strong connections. If you would like to visit the school, please call for an appointment to visit at 716-248-1485 or just stop in.
This truly extraordinary school is located at 115 Ash Street near the corner of Genesee and Michigan.
