My Students

This K-12 place of learning is an urban public school. Our learning community is home to more than 90% minority students with more than 90% of our students meeting Title I requirements. Our school has been noted in the community as one of the models for educating students from this population.

The school is home to many families, as it has educated many of it's current Middle School students since Kindergarten.

Our school has been a pillar in the community for many years. Our family atmosphere works to support students inside and outside of the classroom. Our school motto is "Whatever it takes" when it comes to ensuring that our scholars, students who are typically underserviced an/or overlooked, receive a quality education.

My Project

In our school, we offer English 1 to 8th grade students who have shown an advanced grasp of grade level reading materials. These students are required to read 8th and 9th grade ELA texts. Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare is one of the text that the 8th grade students will read in preparation for high school.

Despite being advanced, Shakespeare can be complicated for students who have not been exposed to it, so these print materials would allow students to become deeply engaged and connected to the text.

The copies of this novel that are being requested will allow each student to receive their very own copy of Romeo and Juliet. This means that students will be able to read and analyze the material inside and outside of school.

Additionally, students will be able to add this timeless classic to their personal library.
