International School 45 is an elementary school in Buffalo, New York. It is located at 141 Hoyt Street and serves Grades PK through 6. The current principal is Ms. Lynn Piccirillo.
School 45 was constructed in 1889 to provide additional classrooms for the growing Upper West Side of Buffalo. The original address was 402 Auburn Avenue. An addition was constructed in 1924 to provide more space, before a new and larger building was built in 1971, connected to the 1924 addition. This new building caused the original building to be destroyed and the address to change to Hoyt Street.
Originally a community school, School 45 began to take in a large amount of students from the city's West Side, which has a large immigrant population. The school housed Grades PK through 8, but due to overcrowding, the school's seventh and eighth graders began attending Lafayette High School beginning with the 2011-2012 school year.
