History - School #6
School #6 was one of the first schools built by the Buffalo Board of Education in 1839. In 1977, School #6 became one of the first magnet schools and was named Academic Challenge Center. Twenty years later, the school coordinator began an initiative in order to revitalize the school. In an effort to prepare students for the future, School 6 became the first elementary technology magnet and was renamed Buffalo Elementary School of Technology. Technology specialists and classroom teachers designed a program to integrate technology into all subjects. Recently the building was remodeled with state of the art features. Today the staff at B.E.S.T. is ready to prepare your child to become one of the "makers of the 21st. century."
