  • I attended Ely High and I graduated class of 1999. That was around the time we had Friday school and most of us were going to school 4 days a week. I loved that program and that gave me the opportunity to do other things on Fridays like internship. My education at Ely was exceptional and I still go to visit my teachers when i visit Florida. I give the school and exceptional review because when I was at the school my teachers were there to help me whenever I needed them.
