Buffalo Schools

Buffalo is promoted as a center for learning and has a large number of schools. The city itself has dozens of public schools with a healthy student to teacher ratio of 13.5:1. More than a quarter of the teachers in these schools have a Masters degree and are well equipped to take on the tens of thousands of students that study in these schools.

Many of Buffalo's schools use a system called the magnet system. This is a system wherein the schools offer courses in special interest like bilingual studies, science, Native American studies. Some of the technical schools in the city include the Buffalo Elementary School of Technology, the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Multicultural Institute, the International School, Dr. Charles R.
