My Students

The gym is my second classroom. It's often that my scholar-athletes learn skills and habits that cannot be found in your typical classroom. Often times, I feel fortunate that I get to interact with these scholars over their entire high school career, as opposed to one year in a classroom.

We are a small biotech-related pathway school in California that opened in 2013.

These are public high school scholars who dared to take a new path by enrolling in a biotech pathway high school. These scholars challenge themselves every day and in every class; they listen to guest speakers from the local health and biotech community, they take field trips to see biotech practices in action, they take part in job shadowing and internships and they are working towards a bright and exciting future! Approximately 60% of our scholars are on free and reduced-price lunch. Along with these high demands of academics, some choose to participate in extracurricular activities. Our standards for participating in sports are actually higher than other local high schools.

My Project

Our program is expanding! For the 2018-2019 school year, we will be entering year 6 as a school and I personally will be in my 5th year as the head coach. When I first started, we had 14 players on the roster. Last season (2017-2018), we went to a roster of 23 players. More and more scholar-athletes are becoming interested in basketball and we want to keep that interest level high.

With the increasing interest on our campus and roster size, we need more basketball duffel bags so our players can keep practice gear, game uniforms, shoes and other necessary materials (athletic tape, snacks, water, etc) with them.
