School hours are 9-3 p.m., and our academic subjects include English, Math, Social Studies, Science, Spanish, Art, Technology Education, Home and Careers, Music, and Physical Education. Extra curricular activities include Modified Basketball and Track and Field, Leaders in Training (LIT), and the National Junior Honor Society. Our student resources are Guidance, Closing the Gap, Student Support Team, Boy's and Girl's Club, and Western New York United (AMP Tutors). School #43 has a Parent Teacher Organization and a full-time Parent Facilitator that is charged with identifying parent involvement opportunities in conjunction with the school's administration. EPIC workshops are also provided to address the varying needs of our parents.
