My Students

We are a non-screening school because we believe every child has the right to learn and dream big. 75% of our students are eligible for free or reduced lunch.

Two-thirds of our seniors will be the first in their families to attend college.

Approximately one third will be the first in their home to graduate from high school.

At our school, we have a vibrant advisory program that focuses on the inseparable connection between social/emotional learning and academic success. Our students know and believe they will change the world needs.

My Project

College Signing Day 2018

My students need to see that we celebrate the college-going legacy they help create at our school.

Our students will change the future for their families as the next take step towards college.

My Project

College Signing Day will celebrate the senior classes work from our December celebration of the college app process to deciding where to attend college.

Our day of celebration will also be a day of inspiration for the 9th-11th graders at our school.

By making a college-going culture the coolest thing to be a part of, we will make sure that our school community understands that hard work will pay off!

Our huge celebration will include a school-wide assembly in which underclassmen will present our seniors with decorated shout-out pennants. Our seniors will announce their signing commitment to the student body. Seniors will then participate in a series of activities: designing college chalk t-shirts.

At our celebration, students will increase their chances for winning door prizes like a bed in a bag, alarm clock, and other college basics by having had excellent attendance, being on the honor roll, or receiving role model nominations.
