NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- In 2016, New Rochelle High School (NRHS) announced that it raised its graduation rates from 78% in 2008 to 86% in 2016. This was an important accomplishment for NRHS, especially since Hispanic students broke the 80-percentile mark for the first time with the most recent graduating class. Hispanic students are the largest demographic at the school, and have a lower graduation rate and higher dropout rate than other students.New Rochelle Education Board of Education
I would like to thank all the people that voted for me and gave me their support. Every word and form of communication used on my behalf are appreciated, and not taken for granted. As a first time candidate in any type of election, I experienced a small sample of the inner workings of politics as a school board candidate. It is clear that merely being well qualified and eager to make a difference in the community and in the public school system is not sufficient.New Rochelle Education Board of Education
