It was an exciting Wednesday for the Students and Staff of Bronx International High School when Google stopped by on November 4th, 2015 with class sets of Google Cardboard for students to go on virtual explorations through the new Expeditions Pioneer Program! All students got to take teacher-guided expeditions to locations such as the Little Bighorn Battlefield in Montana, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, and career explorations, such as Miral Kotb's iLuminate studio!

On Monday, May 4th, 2015 BXIHS Class of '15 student Darinel Montero was selected to share his life journey to an audience at Lehman College. Darinel also received the opportunity to meet and introduce President Barack Obama. The President was visiting the Bronx to introduce his "My Brother's Keeper" initiative: a private non-profit outgrowth of the White House initiative he launched last year to help young men of color. It was an honor and experience that Mr. Montero will never forget!
