It's August 26, and on this date in 1920, the 19th amendment was ratified, giving women the right to vote. It might seem hard to believe that American School existed for 23 years before women held this fundamental right, but you should not be surprised to learn that we have never discriminated against any student. Some of our earliest students were those who were among the marginalized and could not attend traditional school because they needed to have full-time jobs to support their families. Today we continue to serve any student regardless of gender, ethnic background, creed or physical location, and we will not amend or change that policy in any way.
