“This is my third year in the program and, at first, I was a little nervous,” recalled Kamora. “But everyone in Webster is so nice and welcoming; the district just opened me up to new experiences.”
Brycen began in Webster as a fourth grader at State Road Elementary School. Now that he’s entered Spry Middle School, he has a bit of advice for other Rochester City School District families who may be thinking about applying to this worthwhile program.
“They should definitely do it,” Brycen urged. “It’s helping me grow, be a better student, and people there are helpful all of the time.”
Brycen’s mom, Monique Robinson, couldn’t agree more.
“The community support is there in Webster for the Urban-Suburban program,” Mrs. Robinson said. “Brycen’s elementary teachers really got to know him as a person and a student. He has made so many connections with other students and is ready for middle school!”
