Buffalo Promise Neighborhood operates four schools: Westminster Community Charter School, Highgate Heights Elementary, Buffalo Promise Neighborhood Children’s Academy and The Children's Academy at Gerard Place. A dozen M&T Bank employees are solely dedicated to the mission of Buffalo Promise Neighborhood. We recognize that when parents and children have the opportunity to succeed, families and the community around them are able to thrive, as well. Two-generation programs help parents gain new skills while their children receive a high-quality education.
Working in the 14215-zip code on Buffalo’s upper east side, Buffalo Promise Neighborhood (BPN) is a unique public/private partnership bringing together local business, community and philanthropic leaders to help build and sustain stronger communities within the city of Buffalo.
Our school administrators, our WCCS Trustees and Westminster Foundation Board members, and our hardworking and knowledgeable staff all provide critical supports that help sustain the BPN promise and ensure its success.
Channeling our efforts through early education, community schools, our two-generation approach, and service to the schools and community, BPN is helping affect positive change in our students, our families and our community.
