  The Fowler High School Class of 2016 graduates Thursday, but seniors put on their caps and gowns a day early to parade through local elementary schools. High fives and cheers could be seen and heard in the hallways of Bellevue Elementary School, with younger kids holding signs to congratulate the passing high schoolers. Graduating seniors Juliana Rodriguez and Ramel Davis say the excitement was palpable.

A new academy will be phased in at the former Fowler High School in Syracuse starting this fall.  Poor state performance is forcing the change, which was approved Wednesday by the SCSD Board of Education.

It will be called the Public Service Leadership Academy, and will include four career-specific academies:   First Responder, Homeland Security, Military Science and Entrepreneurship. Within those academies, students can opt-in to eleven more narrow career pathways – all under one roof.

Syracuse came together Saturday for the second annual. Neighborhood safety was the hot topic at the second annual Neighborhood Action Conference held at Fowler High School this past weekend.  Some residents feel fighting crime isn’t rocket science; it’s a matter of starting out small with the family and the neighborhood at the center.

Undergraduates from the Newhouse School at Syracuse University partnered with students from Fowler High School to produce three films.
