My Students

Our students are extremely talented and have great potential! The demographic of our school is about 90% Latino but getting more and more diverse each year. We just became wall to wall magnet to allow our students to have a choice in what high school they can attend. All our students still qualify for the free lunch program and we have been ever increasing in our scores as a whole. The culture of our school has been amazingly positive. We are making great efforts to increase our technology use in the classroom and get technology to each student.

We are a School To Watch four years running and we are very proud of it!

Students in my class use their hands to build and make projects daily.

My Project

We have a wonderful room for our MakerSpace! We have been and are excited to create and build more amazing projects. But guess what? We do not even have basic tools in our MakerSpace! We have been working with paper and cardboard but we want to transition to wood! Students need to learn how to work with their hands and be able to use basic tools like a chisel and sandpaper. Join us to support the hands-on learning at our school.

We want to build well rounded students who can not only get their studies done but also be able to use their hands to make, build, fix, improve and invent the future.
