School Background

WSCS opened in the fall of 1974 as a School of the First Baptist Church of West Seneca with 44 students in grades K through 6.  It presently serves students in grades pre-K through 12.  As the school is a School of the church, the senior pastor is its superintendent with the details of administration carried out by the school administrator.  A six-member school committee works with the administration to formulate the policies of the school with the cooperation of the administrative staff.  Teachers, secretaries, and other staff members complete a team that works together in this aspect of the church school.

School Facilities

The school has a large educational wing of 14 classrooms, a library, and school offices as well as the use of several rooms in the adjoining church building.  A full-size gymnasium provides for physical education and indoor sports.  Our large recess playground and back field provide a safe outdoor space for the warmer months.  The traditional classroom setting helps provide security and control for top educational achievement.
