Congratulations to our 2019 valedictorian Aaron Spruill who was featured in the Washington Post. He shared his aspiration to become a computer scientist.
Our team works together, and we support each other in amazing ways. This is a new experience for me, especially in a large organization.
We are adamant about offering students choice...We want them to have options, not just a one-dimensional educational experience.
[Engineering class] is a great opportunity for students...It is so rewarding to see my students make it to the city STEM fair and win prizes.
