My Students

Our students come from all over Tucson; although we are located in the heart of the city, our student body is diverse. Our students care about themselves and each other, and about the community. They have a vested interest in making the world a better place, and in learning in creative and unique ways. Many of our students would be bullied or socially ostracized in larger, more traditional schools; at our school, they flourish and find a true safe home.

At our school, everyone is known well.

Our Advisory program ensures that every student has a place at school where they feel at home. This year, our Advisories are smaller and grouped by grade-level so that Advisors can better address the social-emotional and academic needs of their Advisees. Part of our mission statement is to be "a community of learners in which all members use their minds well and care about one another." We strive to balance relationships with rigorous academics so that every graduate from City High is a well-rounded, educated, thoughtful person who can become an active member of society and a responsible steward of the world.

My Project

I teach my English students that annotating a text makes it their own. By writing their ideas and thoughts in the margins, they are adding their voice to the page. The copy of the text become theirs and nobody else's. But when we read books as a class, oftentimes those books belong to the library or the school, so students cannot write in them.

I want my students to deeply engage with the text of Richard III.

I want them to be able to write in the margins, circle, highlight, and underline, all in the service of making the book their own. I want these books to belong to them once we're done working with them, so that they can feel empowered by the work they did to understand and analyze the play.
