B.E.S.T. Academy High School students go for the bowtie look

The young men of B.E.S.T. Academy High School chose to wear a bowtie as a part of their school uniform. Principal Boris Hurst is convinced that “the bowtie fosters a new look of distinction among the high school students.” Students received their bowties at a formal ceremony where school partner 100 Black Men of Atlanta was on hand to assist with distribution of the ties.

B.E.S.T. Academy High School is a part of the latest phase in the Middle School Transformation Initiative that includes single-gender academies. B.E.S.T. and the all-female Coretta Scott King Young Women’s Leadership Academy (CSKYWLA) each opened high schools this year, starting with the freshman class that grew out of their respective middle schools, and will continue to grow until they feature all four high-school grades.

  1. We need more of this in and outside of schools! As a teacher, it warms my heart to see such effort being put forth into strengthening the character of our young men. As they look distinguished on the outside, know that this transformation is enabling a positive emotion on the inside…which is what “our” young men of society needs. The “pants on the ground” theory stops here!

  2. I never seen such good looking young men in along time keep up the good work.
