Yale Educator Award 2019

We are pleased to share the news that our HS Counselor Jim Barekman has received a 2019 Yale Educator Award.

The Yale Educator Recognition Program recognizes outstanding educators from around the world who support and inspire their students to perform at high levels and to achieve excellence. Matriculating students are invited to nominate high school educators, and a committee of Yale admissions officers reviews each nomination individually and designates recipients. The Yale Admissions Office attributes the exceptional quality of the Yale student body to educators like these recipients of the 2019 Yale Educator Award, who shape their students long before they attend Yale.

Of this year’s 311 nominees, 55 teachers and 18 counselors were selected to receive the award.
