Sterling School Graduates Inspire Its Current Students
Rain could not put a damper on the Sterling School’s 10th anniversary and graduation at the Peristyle in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park last month.
This celebration marked a milestone in the life of Sterling School and its students. For ten years Sterling has taught elementary school-age children with language-based L.D. and dyslexia. What was special was that in addition to graduating the sixth graders and awarding the accomplishments of many students, parents got to meet over twenty Sterling alumni. These students are now in college, just graduated from high school, or are in schools like Bay Ridge Prep and Brooklyn Tech. They represent the future that many of the parents of L.D. children fear their children can’t achieve.
Deputy Brooklyn Borough President Yvonne T. Graham presented Ruth Arberman with a proclamation marking the achievements of Sterling School. Looking on were Stephen Levin, who is currently running for City Council, and Joyce Arberman.
Sterling School graduates look forward to a bright future brought about by hard work, parental support, and the one-of-a-kind education these students receive at Sterling. In the words of a current graduate, Hunter Haymore, “The Sterling School gave me the opportunity to improve my reading, spelling and math. Before Sterling, I had teachers that didn’t understand me or the way I work. I hated learning anything new because I would never get it. Now I’m looking forward to seventh grade; to new challenges and new experiences.”
