More than 90 percent of all students who attend City on a Hill Charter School attend college.
What's incredible is those students come from some of the most difficult circumstances to succeed.
Wednesday, the charter school celebrated its 20th anniversary at the Renaissance Boston Waterfront hotel.
Starting with 10 students back in 1995, it has now expanded to three schools in Boston and New Bedford.
Necn reporter Josh Brogadir has been a longtime City on a Hill volunteer and was one of the guests at the annual gala Wednesday.
