My teacher Mrs. Creighton makes school fun. With all the teachers, principals and AP they do fun stuff.
Morgan Bowen, Edward Williams School
It was because this school has so many opportunities for all of us. I was inducted into the International Baccalaureate Programme as a Diploma Candidate and I’ve got to say, I was a little nervous to take those classes. But I’ve got no regrets. Thank you, Mount Vernon High School, for the opportunities you have provided me and the rest of the students.
Daren Lu, Mount Vernon High School valedictorian 2023

I like Lincoln because all the teachers care about their students, not just about their classes but also about how the students feel. It is important for students to feel confident and happy in their own skin.
Hillary Vallecillo, Lincoln School
As the Class of 2023, we have witnessed both the best and the worst of times but in those moments of uncertainty, it was the educators who pointed us in the direction of success that helped us discover our purpose and find our voices. Our teachers, beloved by many, played an instrumental role in our growth.
Lesley Iyamu, Mount Vernon High School salutatorian 2023
High school is a small world, especially ours. We’ve made memories and lifelong friends, but now it is time to encounter new people and experience new things. The word is much bigger than you can imagine. Class of 2023, you are capable of much more than you think. Always strive for more. Congratulations Class of 2023!

l like NMHZ School because we do fun activities in my class. My teacher taught me cursive handwriting. I am learning multiplication and I like when we made an array of sunshine showing different arrays. I love my new teacher because she makes me understand what I am learning.
Amelia Toppin, Nelson Mandela/Dr. Hosea Zollicoffer School
DWSA has really helped me to reach my potential or at least helped me to see my true potential as an actor. I can use this experience to develop my public speaking skills so I can eventually use my voice to change the world.
Amanda Outen, Denzel Washington School of the Arts
“We are learning to code the robot to play tug-of-war against another robot. My favorite part of this program so far is driving the robot.”

I like the preps because I get to learn different things about art, music, PE, and media. In every activity, I learn more and more about music and art. I learn about abstract art, how to play the ukulele, how to play basketball, and poems.

What makes my school special is that some of the staff have great qualities to have the students look up to them.
