My Students

Our school has a free and reduced lunch rate of approximately 60%. This school has a unique mixture of races, cultures and socio-economic backgrounds. This well-balanced combination allows a school environment that is reflective of society which prepares our scholars for the work force.

Our school serves approximately 200 7-10th grade students in a beautiful urban community.

With the world at our front door, scholars can be found conditioning in the neighboring parks or on the sidewalks that wrap around our downtown skyscrapers.

My Project

This is our first year in our own building but, second year in the middle school basketball program. Last year we had the luxury of utilizing the elementary equipment but this year we need our own.

The jump ropes will assist in the strengthening of our legs and vertical.

Multiple basketballs and cones will allow us to practice several skills in circuit form simultaneously.

Water bottles will provide hydration during practices and games.

The score books will allow us to collect data that will be used to support our practices.

All these tools will are needed in the development of both new and returning athletes.

This team will be a great unifying element in the cultural fibers of our school.
