Back in March, every senior at Ballou High School in Southeast, D.C., applied to college– marking a first for the school. Now, the school sees another first: every senior was accepted into college, according to WUSA9.
Last school year, only three percent of Ballou students met D.C. reading standards in school records, WUSA9 reports.
The seniors had a message for the doubters, singing, “they said I wouldn’t be nothing. Now they always say congratulations,” as they prepared to cross the graduation stage.
Students credit more cohesion with school staff for the vast improvement.
