Named after a former US president and Buffalo mayor Grover Cleveland, built in the Colonial Revival / Georgian Revival style in 1914 as the home of State Normal School, transformed into a Grover Cleveland High School in 1931, in the 1970s a school for foreign language-speaking students, and now an International Preparatory School and a STAR Academy.
The conditions were perfect this evening, with dusk settling in and the light levels balancing nicely with the illumination on the building. The clouds adding drama and setting the building off very nicely. I only wished for even more indoor lights but for a weekend, I was glad thee were some.
The Star Academy (S.T.A.R., or Student Transition and Academic Recovery) is a program designed to provide high school students who are over-age and under-credited with courses to assist them in getting on track towards graduation. The program also supports high school English Language Learner students who are new to the country with limited or no formal education.Sources
