Education Week’s “A Year Interrupted” Documents the Journey of 2 Wakefield Cohort Alumni During the Pandemic


Two Wakefield Cohort students told their stories to Education Week staff members Elizabeth Rich and Brooke Saias. Watch the documentary “A Year Interrupted” to hear their stories.

According to, this documentary is “Told largely through Luis’ and Faith’s personal video diaries over a six-month period, this documentary follows the two friends as they navigate the end of a complicated school year and the beginning of a new one.” Class of 2020 student leader, Faith Achugamonu said of the documentary, “It turned out great! It allowed me to reflect and have a greater appreciation of the school I love, Wakefield! As for me and my family, we are always grateful to see another day.”

Wonderful words from one of our Alumni!
