Work selected by Kwame Alexander on behalf of Southern Poverty Law Center
With a strong academic foundation, and a keen sense of their own strengths, Gordon students shine.
They have class assignments published in their hometown newspapers - and the New York Times. They are comfortable hosting visitors to campus, ranging from touring applicants like yourselves, to television journalists and theoretical physicists.
Gordon students find success in whatever endeavor they choose to take on, winning sports championships, essay contests, robotics tournaments, and the statewide MathCounts competition, where Gordon has taken the top spot at four out of the past five tournaments.
