My Students

Our students cover a full spectrum at our diverse campus. They vary in race, culture, socioeconomic status and interests. Our campus serves approximately 635 students in grades 7th through 8th who are between the ages of 12 and 14.

Ethnically, our students are approximately 87% minority with 45% being Latin American, 26% African American, and 13% Asian and Pacific Islander.

About 25% of our students are currently English Language Learners. Our special education students make up 10% of the entire site.

All of the special education students and English Language Learners and their parents could benefit from having access to books about parenting, a very important skill to collaborate and work together.

My Project

Please help us create a lending library for our parents here at BHMS. It takes a village to raise teens in this modern world and a part of this village includes a resource library. Creating a place where parents can come for help and resources is a key piece to parents being successful. Having books available in a variety of languages is another way to ensure that all parents have access to helpful information. We started our parent library earlier this year and these books are on topics that have been requested from that library.

Having books that cover a variety of topics from supporting your young ladies student to paying for college will be a library that will help with the burning questions parents have.

Knowing how to navigate the ever-changing landscape of teenagers can be a daunting task. From helping them deal with daily pressures of teenhood to helping them figure out how to get college scholarships it's a never-ending job. This is part of two of the parent's resource library giving parents a safe place to become informed.
