Snapshots: June 2011
A look at what's going on in SBISD... June 2011

Thank you for an inspiring school year!

SBISD Grads Inspire Excellence:

Here are a couple of facts that need no debate: Spring Woods High graduates Silverio Ramirez and Kelley Kim are headed for top rated colleges and then law school if the goals that these two grads have set for themselves going forward are anything like the accomplishments they have shown during high school.

One is a star athlete and scholar. The other, also a top scholar, considers test tubes and chemistry equations as comforting as home. Memorial High's Joyce Lee and Wayne Taylor are two examples of the variety in interests and career plans found among graduates at this highly rated public high school.

Next stop for Stratford High graduates Linda Trujano and Patrick Reilly? Try Harvard University and the theater stage at the University of Southern California. The American Dream endures in the lives of these two young people.

Westchester Academy graduates Tzitziki Robles and Oscar Lopez might prove that the International Baccalaureate Bilingual Diploma program at this district charter school can lead to admissions at some highly regarded colleges. Read where these graduates are headed next.

One graduate has made history with an appointment to the United States Naval Academy. Another hopes to provide medical care one day in the Third World to needy children. These two graduates of Northbrook High reached for the clouds. Read their stories here.
