My Students

At our campus, academics come first, and our core classes are instrumental in preparing our students to be college-ready. However, we also need extracurricular programs, particularly within STEM, if we are to be able to make our students competitive at a national level.

Our students come from low-income families, with over 80% qualified to receive free or reduced-cost lunch.

In most cases, our students will be the first members of their families to graduate from college. Our school has a tremendous focus on academic success and rigor. As such, students begin earning high school credit as early as the 8th grade, and all high school students are required to take AP classes. Where we excel in core academics, we lack in extracurricular opportunities. With STEM education being a national focus, we want to build in the opportunity for students to earn an AP credit in Mathematics.

My Project

Many of my students' homes flooded during Hurricane Harvey and they lost everything. Our school requires students to buy their own calculator in 8th grade to use for the rest of their math career.

These calculators were a very expensive investment for my student's families and many of them lost them in the flood waters.

Because of the huge financial burden of flood damage, many of my students no longer have access to a calculator. I want to create a class set to keep in my classroom so that students have access to a calculator everyday during their math class.
