"WNY United provides supports for academic and social improvements that are woven throughout the school day. As partners, they have become tightly integral and coordinated with our school improvement efforts. Many aspects of our student's experience at school are made better by WNY United."
- David Hills, Principal, Waterfront Elementary #95
"Often, students have leadership qualities that are not cultivated due to the urgency of academic priorities. WNY United personnel assist these students in "coming into their own" and developing their strengths. The school #18 community focuses on all aspects of the child - academics, social emotional well-being, and physical. WNY United assists greatly in achieving this endeavor."
- Valarie Kent, Principal, Dr. Antonio Pantoja Community School of Academic Excellence #18
