WAIS Student Shares Her Voice on School Choice

Maria Cuervo, a senior at Westchester Academy for International Studies, confidently took the stage at the National School Choice Week Kick-Off Celebration to share her student voice and perspective on School Choice.

This national event
took place Saturday, January 25, at Minute Maid Park in Houston. Houston was chosen as the host city for the kick-off celebration this year because of the many high-quality school choices made available to parents across the city. “If I did not have this choice to attend Westchester Academy for International Studies, I would not have this opportunity to attend Swarthmore College, the school of my dreams,” Cuervo said at the end of her well-organized and compelling speech.

The National School Choice Week organization provides an opportunity through whistle-stop tours throughout the country to shine a positive spotlight on the need for effective education options for all children. This organization’s belief, as reported on their website,is that parents should be empowered to choose the best educational environment for their children.
