Abaarso School/Wikipedia
The Abaarso School of Science and Technology outside Hargeisa, Somaliland, has done an amazing job of preparing Somali students for some of the leading universities in the United States.

According to its Spring 2013 update, its first graduating class has seven students on their way to the United States, including one to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, one to Oberlin and one to Georgetown.

The privately run school expects to send more than half of its first graduating class to well regarded higher education institutions around the world. Hats off to Abaarso School of Science and Technology!!!
