My Students

My students attend 9th-12th graders at Hartford Public High School (the second oldest continuously operating school in the United States), which is a neighborhood school in Hartford, Connecticut.

As a low-income/high poverty urban school, my students arrive at our school from diverse backgrounds and circumstances.

We have students who have come from approximately 30 different countries and speak at least 23 separate languages. The majority of our students receive free and reduced lunch, however we also have students who have chosen to travel from the suburbs to attend our school.

Our school has one of the highest Special Education populations in our city and many students need extra supports to be successful. We work hard each year to prepare our students to be college or career ready, since many of our students will be first generation college students.

My Project

Students will participate in a morning education session with the cast before seeing a matinee performance of the show.

My school was lucky enough to be chosen to participate in the EduHam program with the tour cast of Hamilton!

I would like to get shirts for all of our students so they can remember this experience. In addition, because this is a full day program, I want to make sure that our students are well fed so they can enjoy the whole show. HPHS is 100% free lunch and my students depend on school for breakfast, lunch, and dinner meals.
