A Meaningful Walk to Columbus Circle

York Prep students are always encouraged to engage in open discussions. Through open discussions, students are encouraged to articulate their perspectives and to actively listen to other people's opinions and points of view. Recently, Mr. Gordon's eighth grade honors history class spent a unit discussing whether New York City should celebrate Columbus Day or Indigenous People's Day. As part of their examination of this topic, the class took a walk to Columbus Circle to observe and talk about what the Columbus statue represents.
