This past Wednesday, Gompers Preparatory Academy had the incredible honor of hosting a special Naturalization Ceremony, held by the U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services. 50 people from over 30 countries took an oath of allegiance to become the newest citizens of our country. Also at the ceremony, Olympian and marathon icon Meb Keflezighi was awarded “Outstanding American by Choice.”

Here is a video article published by KUSI News about Wednesday’s Naturalization Ceremony:

Senior Talk 2016

School Director dances his way to Class of 2016 Graduation!

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.

The video below, 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.
