Saturday Academy – Peer Mentoring
- At International High School at Union Square, students are not only challenged but also provided many opportunities to improve themselves academically. A great example for this is our Saturday School’s Peer Mentoring Program which will start again this week. Our Peer Mentoring Program is offered to students who look for more challenge, more practice, extra help or catch up time. It is also offered to students who do well in our school and are ready and willing to help out other students by “adopting”, becoming Peer Mentors and helping them with their work. In order to successfully implement this great opportunity, students are expected to follow regular school rules and attend regularly. We will provide your son / daughter with a metro card for Saturday School. We are also providing our students with a breakfast and lunch. Location: 40 Irving Place. Washington Irving Library, 1st floor. Time: 9 am – 1 pm.
