Our students consist of mostly minority students; many of them are English Language Learners. Most students are low-income, and some of them are homeless or sharing homes with multiple families. Keeping students in schools and getting them college-ready is the main goal for our school. Our staff members love and cherish our students and encourage them to be the best versions of themselves they can be.
Many of our students are experiencing the unfortunate end of the Silicon Valley boom.
The teachers and staff members give our students 100% to make sure they succeed in the classroom. Our classrooms are fully integrated with special needs students in every class, and we encourage an environment where all students accept and help each other.
Students this year for multicultural day will use ugly sticks (a traditional DIY Newfoundland instrument) and will learn how to use a Maypole.
Students will learn about traditional music associated with those types of dances and events.
The accordion will help the students learn about the different sounds that music from different cultures make. This will also help students who need an extra challenge in music class learn how to play the instrument and take leadership in class. This will give students the responsibility to come in during their own time to learn how to play the instrument and increase their music literacy.
