Our 9th-12th grade students come from all backgrounds and all around Boston. Just under 85% of our students are high needs (economically disadvantaged, English learners, and/or students with disabilities), and over 90% are minority.
Our school is rich in diversity and young talent.
Our students are truly the best of the best in many aspects. Students come to school every day, knowing it is a safe place to take risks and achieve great things. Some are fighting with emotions that they can't control and others are learning how to identify strategies to overcome their own personal hurdles. We teach them that nothing can hold them back with hard work and determination. We also empower them to grow into leaders of the next generation.
A quality Physical Education program that meets national guidelines is the cornerstone for a physically active school and helps support improved classroom behavior, physical fitness, and standardized test scores. Our physical education program provides standards-based daily learning opportunities, age and developmentally-appropriate instruction, meaningful content and ongoing assessment. The skills, knowledge, and behaviors learned in PE help kids to establish and maintain active lifestyles well into adulthood.
The materials that we are requesting is essential for engaging our students in physical activities.
Having adequate PE equipment and supplies is considered essential for a quality program. It is a strong predictor of continued use of an activity-focused PE curriculum.
