International students visit Inwood Academy for Leadership Charter School

Children from Mexico, Uganda, Albania and other countries visited Inwood Academy for Leadership Charter School today as part of a United Nations Children’s Delegation. The delegation attended classes and shared a Dominican lunch that Inwood Academy students had chosen to reflect their own culture.

“Exposing our students to experiences that teaches them that they can be leaders not only in our community, but around the world is invaluable,” said the school’s executive director, Christina Reyes. “The children planned this visit with care and excitement and took away many valuable lessons from this visit. Meeting children from places they have never visited gives them the vision that anything is possible.” (The school supplied this photograph.)
