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

A large number of our students are homeless and transient. They understand the everyday struggles of the community. Since many of our students are homeless, they do not have all the necessary tools that will aid in preparation for college and career. These items are necessary to teach many skills they will need in the future. These supplies would be one less thing that a homeless student needed to worry about, and allows them to focus on the future and all its possibilities. The cabinets gives them a secure place to keep items and this project also supplies some snacks to get the students through the day.
