History Edit

City Honors began as a series of enrichment topics at Bennett High School in 1973. Known as "Course Y", selected students took classes in the evening that dealt with enrichment courses and interdisciplinary topics. Increased student demand led to these workshops becoming a "school-within-a-school" at Bennett beginning in 1975, with a partnership being forged with nearby Canisius College.

In 1976, City Honors landed its own building, the former P.S. 17 located at the corner of Main and Delavan, which would allow the school to add grades 5 through 8 and strengthen its affiliation with Canisius. This made City Honors one of the first magnet elementary schools in the district. The school would eventually move to its current location at the Fosdick-Masten Park High School building during the 1980's, during which time it adopted the International Baccalaureate program.
