My Students

Our school is the top-performing open-access charter high school in New Orleans. Our students come from every corner of New Orleans- from the Eastbank to the Westbank and the Lower 9th Ward to Uptown. We also have an outstanding 3-PEAT state-championship football team, a world-known "Team Bust 'Em Up" marching band, and remarkable academic programs. Additionally, over 80% of our scholars qualify for free and reduced-price lunch and we service a broad special-needs student population.

However, our students are far and beyond those statistics.

They are also inquisitive intellects who value coming to school every single day for positive growth and learning.

My Project

My students are in need of resources that will help keep our learning space clean and healthy! Not only will my scholars be able to independently disinfect desks, tables, chairs, and technology, but they will also have essential access to tissue, hand sanitizer, and soap so their hands can be cleaned before lunch.

Furthermore, learning how to keep our space clean is an incredibly important skill to learn as an introduction to young adulthood and college preparatory living.

By teaching our students the value of a clean working environment, we can model the significance of healthy lifelong cleaning habits and taking pride in your space.
