My Students

Our school celebrates a very diverse population, including a wide socioeconomic range, a large refugee/EL community, and a special education population beyond the national average. 37% of our students receive free or reduced hot lunch. Our surrounding neighborhoods include middle-class homes to low-income apartments, and everything in between. Our population is somewhat transient due to a large number of rentals and apartment complexes, and we have a number of students who are homeless and/or doubling up with other families.

Our school takes pride in the amount of community and character building opportunities we offer our students.

We are proud of our efforts to teach and reward positive behavior, and have experienced an improvement in student behavior and academics as a result of our school-wide positive behavior program.

We have an amazing community of students who are learning to become positive, productive citizens and successful students.

My Project

Our school-wide positive behavior program teaches students our school expectations, and rewards them for demonstrating these behaviors. Once expectations are taught, students are rewarded for positive behavior with tickets. They can then use these tickets to purchase items at our school Pride Store, which consists of items that students love such as small toys, games, sports items, bracelets, erasers, etc. Our Pride Store has proven effective, as students work hard to earn tickets, and then save their tickets to shop. 6th-8th graders benefit from this program, and our school has seen a decrease in problem behavior and INCREASE in positive behavior. Ultimately, this has benefited our school culture and increased our academic standing.
