Although, I struggled with the rigorous academics being thrown at me at such a young age, I persevered, despite my obliviousness to the rationale behind it. I am driven by success and have been supported by my school administration and teachers who recognize my drive and strive to help me reach my goals. I have partaken in rigorous courses that focus on particular areas where minorities are severely under-represented to ensure that I'd be prepared to face the ever evolving challenges of the 21st century. I have embodied Medgar Evers College Preparatory School’s mission of being, “Dedicated to Excellence,” by immersing myself in challenging studies over the course of my high school caree

Medgar Evers is a school in which encourages the minority groups to achieve greatness. In doing so, they have a plethora of different centralized AP courses suited for any potential major you are interested in. They cater to the Arts, Sciences, Humanities, and even more. Despite the school being mostly centralized on black/African Americans, I find myself very happy to see people from different races and backgrounds being included in this community. This school is also said to be a very prestigious school, which is implied by the self made prodigies the school is bringing up. The only limiting factor that brings this school down a few tiers is it's financial situation.
I've gone to this school for 5 years now. It is a middle high school so I've been here since 6th grade. Medgar Evers is a school primarily for African American children where around 80% of the student body is African American and the rest being diverse cultures, such as, Asian, Caucasian, etc. The students are required to learn a foreign language, and the first one they allow you to take is Chinese. The teachers are also very close to the students allowing us to take 1 on 1 tutoring afterschool, or staying after their shifts to help with test corrections or explain to a student that doesn't understand. Even doing that in class and encouraging students to ask questions. The smart scholar program allows students to go to the CUNY Medgar Evers College to take part in a 2 year associate's degree program in Biology or Computer Science allowing students to get a one up on other students in the city.
