Join Our Journey

Welcoming kindergarteners and first-graders in 2022, Buffalo Commons is an emerging learning community that is actively diverse. Located in the heart of the city, we embrace a vision of diversity that provides each and every student the freedom to truly be themselves.

~ As a kid, joining Commons means learning through authentic real-world experiences and finding joy in learning and discovery.

~ As a family, you will be among like-minded folks who have big dreams for their children and care deeply about how kids are educated. 

~ As a community, we will work collectively to ensure all our children receive the education they deserve.

A Common Sense of Purpose

The Commons community is made up of people that come from all walks of life, each entering from different places and headspaces and cultures. Yet we all share a common purpose—to figure out who we are and what we can do for the world, to find our own version of success, and to learn from one another while we’re at it.

 

And in that way, we are one.

Rooted in Community

Powered by educators, students and families, we make the most of our precious time spent together, creating a safe, positive learning environment—a sacred space—where curiosity is shared and challenges are met head on. This is our common bond.

It’s within this creative, collaborative and caring community that every student realizes their unique talents are needed in the world—your Commons education unlocks the potential to become a force for common good.
