Meet Antonio

Home State IN
Grade 6th

Antonio is one of the most focused students in his classes at St. Philip Neri in Indianapolis. He has also had to come further along than other students his age. When Antonio first started school he only spoke Spanish, so he had to learn to speak, read and write English to keep up at school. As a participant in the Indiana Choice Scholarship Program, Antonio is now thriving and prides himself on paying attention to his teachers and being a great student. “I am thankful to get to go to school here because everyone is treated equally and there’s no bullying,” says Antonio. “Also, if you need help the teachers actually do help you so you don’t have to be afraid to ask.”
