Wes's life at the Riverdale Country School
The Riverdale School is a very fine private school that was the exact opposite of the public schools in the Bronx. It was a college campus, mowed lawns and nice uniforms. To afford the school Wes's mother had to work night and day. At Riverdale Wes was the jokester, the rebel, he skipped classes to hang out with his "Crew." Wes's mother finally saw his grades and figured out what he was doing and laid down the hammer, military school.
