Columbia University Model United Nations

Our Model United Nations (MUN) team at AGE has been growing strong. Over the past few weeks our High School students have been prepping for their upcoming MUN conferences. Their preparation comes after their excellent performance at the Columbia University Annual Model United Nations Conference. Over the years, our delegates from AGE have been eloquently performing at the different MUN conferences while receiving awards for their distinct debating and negotiation skills. The pandemic may have halted many activities and events; however it has not stopped our young diplomats from keeping up with world affairs and attempting to solve global issues. 

Poetry Contest Wins

Beginning with our little berries in Kindergarten,  our wonderful AGE teachers foster the love of reading and writing through poetry. Our educators inspire their students to express their feelings, emotions and thoughts through the language of poetry. They also encourage them to partake in con tests such as the Creative Communication Poetry Contests every Spring and Fall. A big group of our students from Kindergarten, 2nd Grade and 4th Grade have been recognized for their eloquent writing! In addition, their poems have been selected to be published in the Creative Communications Anthology. We are very proud of our students and their talented teachers!.
