The Warner School is located in LeChase Hall on the River Campus, a few miles south of the urban center of the city of Rochester, NY. Aptly named, the "River Campus" is situated along the scenic banks of the Genesee River and contiguous to an expansive park developed by the noted 19th-century urban landscape architect, Frederick Law Olmstead. The Rochester metropolitan community (population, approximately one million) is the leading business and educational center of western New York and its picturesque Finger Lakes region.
