A health sciences charter school relocating to the Buffalo Medical Corridor, offering internships and field trips

While  high schools offering vocational and occupational  careers were closed in the last decade in the Buffalo Public Schools--Emerson, Kensington, Seneca---others turned into comprehensive high schools such as McKinley, and rumors of Burgard High School closing, a new local charter school is filling in the vacuum.
The new Health Sciences Charter School is offering a curriculum with a college prep and health sciences focus, moving from the Town of Tonawanda to the Buffalo Medical Corridor.
What makes it  unique is the partnerships it has formed with the most important institutions in the local health care industry such as the Catholic Health System,  Erie County Medical Center,  Kaleida Health,  and Roswell Park.

"Let’s be honest: we need a lot more well-off, well-educated white folks with a personal stake in both charter schools and education reform in general if we’re going to take reform to the next level, both politically and operationally.Whitney Tilson, hedge fund manager and major funding angel for the school privatizing Democrats for Education Reform, thinks there’s not enough rich, educated white folks.( Preaprez) click photo to his blog.
