Yo Miss cover

Though Yo, Miss is fiction, it is based on the reality of teaching in a second chance high school—specifically, Wildcat Academy, located on two campuses—in lower Manhattan and the Hunt’s Point section of the Bronx. An alternative high school for students who have literally or figuratively “dropped out” of traditional public high schools, Wildcat gives students a second chance to achieve academic success and a high school diploma. For more information, including how to apply to the school, visit the school’s website.
