Best Kept Secret

06/21/2013 | By More

“Best Kept Secret” is a new documentary worth watching about a teacher in New Jersey who works with autistic students to help them prepare to live in the world once they graduate from school.

The students attend JFK High School in Newark, a public school for students with a wide range of special needs. Administrators there answer the phone by saying, “This is John F. Kennedy High School, Newark’s Best Kept Secret.”

The documentary follows Janet Mino, who has been teaching young autistic men for four years at the school, and several students for a year and half before they graduated in 2012. Newark Mayor Cory Booker has visited the high school and met the students featured in the film. READ MORE HERE
