Students at San Miguel, a private school in Washington D.C. for disadvantaged Latino children, were graced with a surprise visit from Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez on Wednesday. School president Thomas Gerrow said the famous couple was interested in the school’s mission. "Latino males are the lowest graduation rate in the country. And our success so far have been superb in order to overcome those issues," he said.

"I think it was a great honor to have two celebrities to talk about our education," said 6th grader Jivier Ruiz. The couple toured classrooms, and Lopez even offered to help one student with his report on Selena. We think that kid is guaranteed an A on his homework.

Anthony and Lopez, who were in D.C. to perform at the White House, encouraged the children to stay focused on their education. "I literally got a sense when I was walking in that I was looking at the future leaders of this country," said Anthony.
