The National College Board honored Leyden High School this morning with the distinguished recognition of the 2013 Advanced Placement National District of the Year. It was exciting to see so many former School District 81 students being during the event.
Superintendent Nick Polyak graciously thanked many who helped Leyden achieve this distinction including the partner districts for the experiences students are provided before they arrive at Leyden High School. I spoke with many Leyden Board of Education members and administrators, and their pride for their students and educators is an inspiration.
I was thrilled to attend the event and I extend my sincere congratulations to the Leyden students and educators who worked very hard to achieve this stellar honor.
