My Students

Students come to our library to read, work, learn, create, and relax. We want to provide them with a world class experience in their library!

Our school library is an active hub of learning for our 1900+ students.

We have a diverse student population that includes students with special needs and English language learners. Our students are known for being high achievers, as well as for making a difference in their school and communities by being active in many extracurricular activities.

My Project

Today's students often experience high stress levels and packed schedules. We want to promote positive mental health and good stress management practices for our students!

What better way to relieve stress and promote good mental health than through physical activity?

Research shows that physical activity is an excellent way to manage stress. Having exercise bikes in the library will allow students to be active throughout the day. The bikes even come with desks so that students can read at the same time!

Our library is extremely popular with students, with many visiting before school and during lunch. We know that our students will be excited to use bikes in the library!
