2019 marks the 20-year anniversary of charter schools in New York City! Charter schools support student growth from Kindergarten through high school graduation and prepare students for college and careers. To celebrate, the New York City Charter School Center created a series of videos to highlight some of the teachers, charter leaders, and alumni who best represent and personify the innovation that charters have championed over the past 20 years. Our very own, Elisa Castillo, '17, is featured in the video series! Elisa is now a sophomore at Queens College and a student intern at MESA.
