“Alamo Heights in San Antonio, TX creates an inclusive culture throughout the campus. Alamo Heights High School has an incredible peer tutor program. Peer tutoring helped Alamo Heights become a National Banner Unified Champion School. Peer tutors in the program shifted from helpers to equal partners. The Unified Club creates a community of advocates. I enjoyed learning about Alamo Heights’ inclusion revolution.” – Ilana Drake, UCS Correspondent (New York)
