Through tears, valedictorian Sade Johnson congratulated her peers on surviving the past four years. “Through it all we stayed together and we grew to know each other,” she said. “Laughing, crying and having fun.”
Perspectives was one of the first teacher-created and teacher-led small schools in Chicago. It became a charter school 13 years ago and opened a school in the old Calumet High School four years ago. This week, as Catalyst's Sarah Karp describes, Perspectives Calumet graduated it's first senior class. Congratulations.
