Director Vincent Riveroll of Gompers Preparatory Academy will stop at nothing to ensure that his 6th through 12th grade students experience JOY every day that they are in school.
Once a failing school plagued by violence, low attendance and low achievement, GPA is now a thriving college prep academy that is recognized for 100% senior graduation rates and 100% college enrollment. This could not have been done without the incredible, innovative talent and leadership of Director Riveroll.
This video, which was the kickoff to this year’s senior graduation ceremony, exemplifies Director Riveroll’s heart, humor and creative talent – all of which are at the heart of GPA’s JOY factor, and secret to the school’s success.
