    "High school is both progressive and regressive at the same time. The teaching methods are very innovative and effective, but the behavior methods for discipline are inconsistent and do not offer avenues for positive reinforcement. It's all punishment or inconsistent enforcement of school policies. For example, students get a silent lunch for talking in class, but other students who might cuss out a teacher get let back in with an apology, or students will rack up multiple tardies but will never have to serve a detention. The leadership of the school can be quite arrogant at times and plays favorites when it comes to student issues that arise, or ignores the glaringly obvious weaknesses the school has. Most of the teachers are great but are overshadowed by an out-of-control librarian and an AmeriCorps worker who think they run the building. If the school can realize they are not immaculate and exempt from criticism because they are a charter, and proactively try to find solutions to their many weaknesses, they could be much better."

    "My daughter was part of the first graduating high school class. She loved the school! They had a great curriculum, the teachers were wonderful, engaging and caring. Mrs. Cathcart is the best administrator and the students still go back to visit her and the other teachers. My daughter is now a Senior at Buffalo State College. I loved the school even through its growing pains."

    "My children attend the elementary school. So far so good. This school has a lot to offer their students. I am noticing some diversity and other cultural programs, compared to charter schools like Buffalo United Charter school that does not provide anything for their students.Tapestry is an good school. Keep up the good work."
