Always striving for excellence, never settling for mediocrity, students who excel have much in common - focus, determination and great parental and teacher support.

Today,
The Gleaner
celebrates with the island's outstanding students.

Thousands of them sit in overcrowded classrooms where resources are short, some have even suffered loss of family members to crime and violence, many are kept out of school because of trying circumstances in their communities but, even so, they excel.

The stories are varied, but the lesson is the same: academic success demands focus and commitment. Enjoy
