Buffalo Academy of Science Charter School (BASCS) is changing lives in the inner City of Buffalo. This STEM-focused school (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) has almost 400 students, ranging in grades 7 through 12. Over ninety-four percent of the students are living below the poverty line. Being poor does not mean you are NOT smart. Last year one hundred percent of our students graduated and went on to college. BASCS offers Saturdays classes, extended school day, and summer bridge classes. I have served since 2012 as an advisory board member and now serve as a trustee, because I believe in educating our future. A few weeks ago the school purchased the old YWCA on Franklin Street. School administration would like to renovate the unused pool area and turn it into classrooms to expand the school to include grades 5 and 6. If you can you help contact Staci Cameron, Outreach/Events Coordinator & Grant Writer at 716.854.2490 ext. 250 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
