We look forward to meeting you and your child!


We’re so excited to share our wonderful school with you. We believe children learn best when they are doing, not sitting in a chair listening. That’s why our curriculum is built around activities. Children learn by doing – rolling their sleeves up, getting dirty, making mistakes and having fun. This is how meaningful learning happens. The kind of learning that lasts a lifetime. The kind of learning that drives the children to want to learn more, to want to work harder, to want to succeed.

As part of our inquiry approach, students at CSI explore many areas of African-American history and culture, in addition to world culture. No one lives in our world alone, and we believe that the more we can learn from and understand all the world’s cultures, the better educated and more prepared we will all be to be successful in the world.

It gives me great pride to invite you to explore the many ways the Charter School of Inquiry is changing how the students of Buffalo learn and grow. For more information or to set up a tour of the school, please contact the school. I hope to see you soon!
