SUISUN CITY — A look of concern appeared on Bryan Hernandez’s face. The 12-year-old, along with the other students in a sixth-grade English class at Crystal Middle School, were researching colleges.
While Stanford University is his first choice for higher education, University of California, Davis, is second. Bryan read that he needed a 4.03 grade point average to attend UC Davis. He carries a 3.8 GPA, having earned a B in that very English class.
