Designed to reach the hardest-to-teach students in Buffalo Public Schools, this Accelerated Student Achievement Program organizes students into interest-focused clusters. One-to-one computing allows a self-paced curriculum, freeing class time for group projects in conjunction with business partnerships. Planned as a prototype for big box retail retrofits, the school design implements research-based facility strategies to enhance student performance. Produced in collaboration with Buffalo-based Steiglitz Snyder.
