We have approximately 215 students at Genesee Community Charter School who come from the Rochester City School District and the surrounding suburbs. We have one classroom per grade level of 30 to 32 children with two teachers and a full-time teaching assistant in each class. At GCCS, teachers in grades K-5 loop, or stay with their class, in grades K-1, 2-3, and 4-5. Sixth grade does not loop. The small student-to-teacher ratio contributes to the success of our rigorous, investigative program. Small, flexible groupings allow teachers to challenge and meet the needs of all children. Our school was designed to reflect the socio-economical, cultural, and religious diversity of Monroe County.
