Our school serves a student population that is 95% low-income, 98% minority, 62% English Language Learners, 9% Special Education students and 100% incredible. School enrollment has grown over time (and is now at full capacity) due to consistent improvement in school quality. We are now nearing almost 800 students.
We are an innovation school, with extended day and extended year.
We have shown significant growth in the past four years since turnaround, catapulting ourselves from one of the lowest-performing schools to the 8th in the state for growth. We've also just been approved to open a middle school in the coming year!
I have strict limits on the supplies that I am given. 90% of my students are English Language Learners. I print out images to introduce key vocabulary words or use pictures to teach my students key concepts. Since my school only has a black and white copier, it is hard for the students to see the pictures that I print out. When I am teaching key vocabulary words, it is essential that my students see the picture in color to understand the concept. With your help you will be able to provide my classroom with color and the basic needs for my students.
