When it comes to education, everyone has a right to learn. But in today’s society, we are facing a variety of challenges that are preventing every child from receiving an excellent set of education. Because of this, Bernard Pierorazio continues to work tirelessly in providing our students the necessary resources for them to read well, write analytically, and speak knowledgeably about the world around them.
