School of Dreams, I

So I spent the last two weeks reading Edward Humes School of Dreams. A very enjoyable read. Humes spent a year at Whitney High School, California's top-ranked public school. The book does a good job of looking at the various factors of why the students succeed, and why the school succeed. To give you an idea about how this school excels, their average SAT score is around a 1350. It's an interesting read, and my next entries are going to deal with excerpts from the book.
