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 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

My students are part of a Veterinarians in Training Program. They need pet supplies to assist with community dogs: crates, blankets, first aid kit and play pen-to aid in setting up the training classroom.

Our students are preparing to become veterinarians and they need supplies to house and feed pets.

We have several Vets that come to our school and demonstrate how to execute wellness exams on guinea pigs, cats, and dogs.

We have two classroom guinea pigs that assist in the learning process. We have several small dogs that we bring in on weekly basis, that are used to learn wellness exams. We work with a local rescue group that we assist in the care of puppies during the day.
