9th Graders Visit Ellis Island and the Tenement Museum

The Class of 2022 visited Ellis Island and the Tenement Museum on the Lower East Side in October as a way to bring to life what they had learned in the classroom. The ninth graders' Capstone year, which thematically focuses on Identity and Belonging, began with an exploration of migration and immigration, the reasons behind the movement of individuals and cultures, and what the process of integrating into a new culture can be like.
