We're a Title I school in El Paso, Texas with high rates of mobile students, but we are still constantly at the top of the ranks when compared to our neighboring schools. All of our schools have to battle the same precipitating factors that make students struggle, but not all schools have the same teachers or the same students. Our special needs students are held to the same high expectations that we push for school wide. At most schools, the students that are best known are the most popular, the smartest, the most talented... here, our special needs students are among the most popular, the smartest and the most talented. They are magical! They light up any room and every face. Autism, intellectual and/or learning disabilities, other health impairments and even poverty are not enough to keep them down. They rise to any challenge they are presented with, but they do need certain supports to step up to them.
