My Students

We are an inner-city magnet school in our district with a medical theme. My students come from all over the city, from all different schools, cultures, and backgrounds. In spite of the many obstacles, such as being homeless, my students achieve higher than all the neighboring high schools and have a 100% graduation rate and college acceptance rate.

Unfortunately, many of our students struggle with homelessness.

Our school is located in a low-income area with 100% of the students receiving free lunch. More than three-quarters of our students are from low-income households.

Most of our students select careers in the medical field. Their access to resources needed to prepare them for this path is very limited. DonorsChoose.org makes it possible for our children to have the necessary tools to succeed.

My Project

Our students come from a poverty stricken city. All of our students get a free breakfast/lunch. They attend our Hs to focus on a career in the medical field. All our academics are fused with medicine.

Our students are not able to afford any technological advances that could assist in obtaining better grades.

This project will supply students with BEATS, wireless headphones that will enable them to work independently in classroom settings, that will not interrupt regular classroom instruction.

These headphones will give the advanced student opportunity to work ahead of the rest of the class, and excel. While, these headphones will also afford the student that is behind, an opportunity to catch up.
