LEONARDO DA VINCI COLLEGE PREPARATORY SCHOOL
Rated #1 Among ALL High Schools in Western NY!
A Diverse Community in the Pursuit of Excellence
Leonardo Da Vinci High School is a four-year, co-educational public high school located on the campus of D'Youville College in Buffalo, New York. A unique feature of the high school/college partnership allows student to enroll in fully accredited and transferable college courses as early as their sophomore year. As a result, da Vinci students can graduate with up to 22 college credits.
As a small high school located in the heart of Buffalo's West Side, da Vinci provides focused, individualized attention to every student and is able to foster an environment based on academic excellence and mutual support in a family atmosphere. We are celebrated for our connection to the LGBTQ Community and commitment to a culturally diverse student population.
With under 400 students we have dozens of languages and dialects spoken, as well as differing gender identities, expressions and sexual orientations. We not only have high academic expectations, surpassing those set by New York State, but also high expectations regarding moral character. Our students are expected to complete several hours of community service each year, and to build relationships with local organizations providing services to the less fortunate.
Leonardo Da Vinci's high academic expectations, which include four years of math and science, three years of foreign language and art courses such as Advanced Placement 2D, Studio in Media, and Anatomical Design result in a Buffalo Public School District high number of students earning advanced designation on their New York State Regents diploma. Da Vinci offers several AP classes such as AP US History, AP Language & Composition & AP Studio in 2D. The Leonardo Da Vinci student is hard working, open to new opportunities, takes chances and is an advocate for social justice. The da Vinci core values of "Kindness, Courtesy, Dignity and Respect" are an accurate reflection of the school community.
