This is my favorite story of the year.  It is truly a story about being against all odds.

This is a wonderful story about battling against all odds.  I’m sure you may have watched movies that have the plot located in a ghetto, and that the students faced major hurdles to graduate HS and go off to college.

Well, this amazing story is about how 100% of its 107 HS Seniors at a Charter High School in the Englewood neighborhood in South-side Chicago were able to be accepted into college.  Mentorship and hard work played significant roles in this story.  In fact, the school hours were significantly longer with 70,000 additional hours versus other HS over four years.
