Jonathan M., a 12th grade student at Ivymount, is the purist example of someone who has learned the importance of self-advocacy and hard work. During his ten years at Ivymount, Jonathan has applied his considerable skills and determination to a remarkably wide range of interests and academic progress which will culminate in his transitioning to DCPS’s Coolidge High School, on track to graduate in 2019.  He has been a Youth Leader and Dee Jay at the DC Annual Voices of Change Conference, an Ivymount School to Work intern, and a tournament-winning tennis player as a member of the Wilson High School Varsity team. Jonathan already has identified his career aspirations – to work in the tennis industry, hopefully as a coach. Ivymount’s Director, Susan Holt, commented, “Jonathan demonstrates how a future can be shaped by taking every advantage of the encouragement and opportunities provided by his teachers. He makes us all proud.”
