For being a Buffalo Public school this school is rocks! From the teachers Mrs Kumpf, Mrs. Amato, Mr Monico to the office administration Mrs. Brauer, Mrs. Belina and assistant principles Mrs Cobbs, Mr. Shepherd are all doing an awesome job. This school has good structure, academics and programs. My daughter will continue till 8th grade here. We are very happy with this school and highly recommend.

I have been quite pleased with school 81. I call ofter for information during the school year and have never had any problems. The teacher does followsup on e mail with concerns. I just wish there were more after school activities for students and/or parents right at school 81. City of Buffalo needs to focus $$ to be used strictly for elementary education. Parents need involvement as well.

This is a horrible school! The teachers are very unfriendly as well as inconsiderate. The way they speak to the students is terrible, constantly yelling and putting the children down. I have recently pulled my child from this school and it was the best decision ever. My child is at a much better school and is thriving as well as going beyond his potential! I am disgusted by this school and would never recommend it to any parent!

As a parent of a former student, I rate this school below average compared to all schools in WNY. If you want to compare it to just buffalo schools, it's probably a little better than average. Pros: good teachers, strong principal, disciplined classrooms. The kids don't run the show in this building. Cons: too much focus on test prep, few extras (field trips, programs, etc), and a really rough group of students especially in the junior high. Seems like the crowd got tougher and tougher every year.
