Meet NFA West Scholar, Giovanni Jackson!


Meet NFA West scholar, Giovanni Jackson. Giovanni just finished his 10th grade year at NFA West campus. This video highlights his experience at NFA West, a Big Picture Learning School, specifically highlighting his internship opportunity. Every scholar at NFA West Campus participates in an internship. They learn about career fields, research internship opportunities in the area, connect with professionals, and apply for an internship each year. 

"We want a school that can be responsive to student needs. What's afforded to our scholars is the ability to get very intimate in their learning with a very caring adult who is going to see them through four years... Certainly being a trailblazer means you're setting the course. In our community, NFA West is setting the course for a very different kind of course for educators and students...If you are responsive to student needs and give them something dramatically different, the trajectory of their life could be set on a different course." Dr. Roberto Padilla, Superintendent for the Newburgh Enlarged City School District
"Gio spent his first day at his internship for Occupational Therapy, came back and was just bubbling over with enthusiasm." Mrs. Kylene D'Alfonso, teacher at NFA West
Last year, Giovanni learned about Occupational Therapy with children with Occupational Therapist, Ms. Denise Kirk at Meadow Hill School. Take a few minutes to learn about Gio's experience!
