New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg Visits BHSEC Queens

bloomberg-bhsecAs part of his final tour, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, along with Chancellor Dennis Walcott, visited the Bard High School Early College in Queens. We are thrilled and honored that the Mayor selected BHSEC to celebrate the end of his and Chancellor Walcott’s tenure in public education in New York City.

The Mayor and Chancellor sat in on a classroom and met with a group of our Year 2 students, many of whom have been accepted through early decision to some of the top colleges and universities in the country. An impressive number of students from both Manhattan and Queens are now preparing to go to Brown, Columbia, University of Chicago, Princeton, Barnard, Middlebury, Carleton, Smith, and Lawrence with prestigious scholarships in tow.
