Leaders cut ribbon at renovated charter school

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – A $21 million renovation project at a Buffalo charter school has been completed, just in time for the school year.

Mayor Byron Brown and students took part in a ribbon cutting ceremony Thursday at South Buffalo Charter School. The new 100,000-square-foot building features dedicated primary, intermediate and middle school areas, a full-service cafeteria, library, technology and computer labs, art studios, music and band areas, and other student-oriented spaces.

South Buffalo Charter School President Jim Neimeier said, “Year after year, we have watched our waiting list of interested students grow at every level, filled with families who are looking for something more for their children’s education, looking for a choice.”

The South Ogden Street school will be home to approximately 800 students in grades K-8 when classes begin on Monday.
