My Students

We are an inner city school that specializes in fine arts and an IB program. Our students come from an urban background and work incredibly hard within our school walls and within the community.

Our students have a very diverse background but come together with a high level of school spirit and culture.

Within the academic realm, our students have a passion for going above and beyond. Within the community and on the athletic fields, this same attitude continues through every activity and service project.

My Project

Our students work incredibly hard during the season and in the off-season. Their sweat, tears and dedication is a build up for the goal of a win on the field.

This fitness equipment will help our students build strength and stamina for their upcoming contests.

And the storage equipment will better help our students learn to properly care for their new gear.

If we want our athletes to correctly represent our school on the field then we need to help them be best prepared for the games. By having some new cones, it will help them build the confidence they need to compete against surrounding schools. The ability to condition is a much needed part of our athletes' overall wellness in preparation for games.
