West Buffalo Charter School - Academics


WBCS utilizes the Expeditionary Learning (EL) Education Curriculum.  Our teachers adapt and design curricula to allow all students to grapple with demanding, standards-based content and meaningful tasks and produce high-quality work. EL elevates student collaboration, voice, thinking, and reflection; is committed to developing character and empowers students to contribute to a more just and equitable world.



EL is based on the Science of Reading. What is Science of Reading?

The Science of Reading is based on research about what matters to teach in early literacy instruction: phonological awareness, phonics and word recognition, fluency, vocabulary and oral language comprehension, and text comprehension.
