Charter school could open in Niagara Falls



NIAGARA FALLS (WIVB) – Niagara Falls could get an elementary charter school.

A founding group of educators, parents, and business officials hope to start what would be the city’s first charter school.

It is called ALL, or the Academy of Learning and Leadership

There was a public meeting about the school Saturday.

“We looked around Western New York to see where charter schools had already opened, and Niagara Falls, the City, they don’t have one so that was intriguing to us,” said Catrina Coffey, a founding member.

If it becomes a reality, the school could be open by fall of 2015. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
