My Students

My students are fun and respectful! Just like my colleagues, the staff at our school are so grateful for everything that is happening in this place every day. Over 75% of our students have known each other for over five years because they come from the same feeder elementary school.

Our students know each other really well because they grow up together and they know how to respect each other.

This is rare because we are an inner city school in the center of Boston, where the mobility rate is extremely high. As a Title I city school, we are proud to say that our attendance is above 90% on average. Occasionally, our 8th graders will reach a 100% attendance.

Academically, they are outstanding! They strive to work for good grades. In the last term, over 80% of our eighth graders were Honorable Mention or above. My students and my school are amazing! They motivate me to reach out for additional resources for them! Please consider helping us!

My Project

The materials will make a difference in my students' learning as these cables will replace the broken and serve as backup for our computer lab. As we built the computer lab, we found out that there are few things that needs to be replenished every now and then, and cables are one of them. These cable connects our computer and monitors together so students can go online to learn collaboratively on Google Classroom and Google Apps, PhET simulations, etc.., Occasionally, students will learn programming, CAD, and Photoshop etc.., All of this are helpful for preparing them for possibilities in the STEM field. Students will learn various topics using inquiry based IB MYP curriculums. These cables connects the computer to the monitors. Without them, the computers will render useless. Please consider helping us out!
