“Math Quiz – Q: If 49% of all NYC high school seniors graduate, what do you get when you reverse those digits? A: The Hyde-Bronx percentage.”
That was my tweet on 6/29, the day Hyde-Bronx held its first ever high school graduation. Needless to say, everyone at Hyde is so proud of these kids!
The lion’s share of these young men and women have been with us since Hyde-Bronx opened its doors in the Hunt’s Point section of the South Bronx in September of 1996. Just about all of them are also headed to college in September of 2013. I mean… How cool is that?!?!?
Congratulations to the Class of 2013 and special thanks to their teachers and school leaders who made it all possible.
Onward, Malcolm Gauld
