Tapestry Charter School first opened in 2001 to provide an innovative, educational experience in Buffalo, NY for grades K-4. Their mission, to offer a challenging, diverse, creative and collaborative education. Their goal is to prepare students both academically and socially, so that they may meet the demands that they will face in the future, professionally and personally. The school has grown one grade per year since 2001, becoming a full K-12 school in 2009. This growth prompted the need for a new building to house grades K-8, which marked the beginning of our partnership.
