Thank you for your interest in our school. 

Great News! We have made changes to the City Honors admissions process to eliminate redundancies and make the process more efficient for families. Be sure to read the flyer below for the fall 2013 admissions poster (high res pdf link also available below). Schools and community organizations can order additional copies of this flyer and posters by calling the main office to the school at 816.4230.

Each year, the response target for notification of admission to grade 9 is the end of January and the response target for notification of admission for grades 5-8 is the end of February. The school district works as quickly as possible to review admissions criteria, but also works diligently to make sure all student review folders are complete before notifications take place.

*Please note: Families relocating to the City of Buffalo from outside of Western New York with interest in admissions to City Honors and any other criterion based schools in the Buffalo Public Schools, must contact the BPS Director of Student Placement, at 716.816.3717.
