My Students

Our students are richly diverse and very involved in their schools, their communities, and with their families. We have over 1,300 students from all socioeconomic strata, and they are committed to their educations and to success after high school.

These students want to achieve!

They believe education can offer them valuable job skills, entry into colleges and universities, and provide them with the knowledge to provide for their families and become involved members of their town and country. Many attend full-time college upon graduation, while others join full-time employment or enter the military. We are determined to support all students in their quests for success.

My Project

Many students lack personal transportation or a network of family and friends who can provide rides to school. Having single-ride bus passes available to them means the difference between missing a whole day or getting here through their own initiative. Our city transit system stops at the driveway to our school, and most pick-up stops are short walks away from residences and neighborhoods.

Our students are busy with home, school, and work commitments, and don't always have transportation available to them.

Bus passes to access our city transit means they can fulfill all their obligations and commitments. These passes will also ensure that they can get to school if they miss the school bus, or if they arrive later in the day, such as for our alternative program which meets in the afternoon. These passes are an essential need that our district does not fund. Your help in this area is vital and will directly impact the daily attendance of our students.
