The youth of this area have the opportunity to attend one of 50 public or 17 private schools across 12 districts. With a dozen districts (one of which is also in Erie County) it can be confusing to know what school your child will be attending.
When you search homes for sale many agents do list the schools for the property. It is always wise for a buyer to verify that information. Greatschools.org is an excellent resource to determine what school zone a property is in.
The county is also home to a couple higher education institutions: Niagara County Community College (NCCC) in Sanborn and Niagara University in Lewiston.
