Brianna Benabe (l.) and Seidy Martinez work with teacher Michael Comerford at thriving Bronx Latin, in U.S.’ poorest district.

Bronx Latin

Students here are greeted by two things each morning: the school motto, “Fortes Fortuna Juvat,” or “Fortune Favors the Brave,” and the friendly face of principal Annette Fiorentino.

“We’ve been called the ‘Breaking all odds school,'” says Fiorentino, who can count Bronx Latin’s 89.5% graduation rate among the school’s achievements.

Much of her student body lives in Morrisania, part of the nation’s poorest Congressional district and Fiorentino dedicates a lot of time to family outreach.

A staffer calls the families of absent students – daily. Her guidance counselors and teachers do a certain number of phone calls each month, and submit logs of their work.

The numbers reflect their efforts: Bronx Latin’s attendance rate, currently at 93%, is never below 90%, Fiorentino says. The school’s 48 seniors all applied to college and 39 already have acceptances, including one student who got a full ride to Gettysburg College.
