In the summer of 2014, I moved to Buffalo from Depew. I didn't take any tests or anything so I ended up going to McKinley. That October, I took a test for City Honors. It was sort of like an IQ test with cognitive thinking skills and the like. Fast forward to February. Hands shaking, I open up a letter from the Education department. (See photograph) it says "Congrats! You've been accepted to CHS for the 2015-2016 school year for grade 10! I was ecstatic. I had the grades and the thinking level to go to one of the best schools in the nation. Fast forward another 2 months. I get a letter from Education dept. "Please call us at xxx-xxx-xxx." Hmmm, what could it be? My father calls. They say my acceptance was a mistake. Many tears and phone calls later, they still refuse to accept me, even though my grades are good enough to get in. No matter what they still refuse and say it was all an accident. Honestly, I went through a lot to get accepted and now they are denying me a right to a challenging and engaging curriculum with peers that are able to compete with me, and clubs and activities not to mention sports that are suited to me. So my goal is to get enough of a case to bring this to the attention of the higher-ups. Help me?
