Is your house in the Discovery School attendance district?

There are only two schools in the Buffalo Public Schools that set aside a certain number of seats for students in a defined attendance zone: Olmsted School 64 and Discovery School 67.

(All other schools give preference to students living within 1.5 miles of the building, but there is no strictly defined list of addresses for those schools, nor is there a set number of seats set aside for students living within that proximity.)

Yesterday, we looked at the list of addresses in the Olmsted district.

Discovery School2Today's blog post is dedicated to those of you in South Buffalo.

Discovery School is the most sought-after school in that part of the city. (For this year, 301 families chose it as their first choice school in the district; only about one-fourth of them got a seat there.) The school sets aside 50 percent of its seats to students who live in its defined attendance zone.

(Necessary to note: As with Olmsted, the fact that you live within the school's district does not guarantee your child a seat in that school. It does, however, give you a better chance of getting your child into that school. If you live in the attendance zone for either school, you will be put into a lottery for open seats reserved for people in the neighborhood. But it is a smaller pool to be competing against than the entire city.)

Curiously, the district indicates as much on its student placement application, but does not seem to make information available anywhere as to which addresses are actually in Discovery's district (or Olmsted's, for that matter).

But when I asked for that information, the district provided it.

Here is a list of the addresses in the attendance zone for Discovery:
