Our students come from many diverse backgrounds. 100% of our students receive a free lunch. We attend an inner city school, where more than half of the students commute for the education we provide. We have healthy foods and a garden, and we speak seven different languages at home.
Our school is a bright, happy place where a university education is our goal!
Students learn in classrooms where experience solidifies the curriculum! Our walls are covered in student innovation and creativity! Students are always encouraged to voice their opinion!
This year in Science, my 5th graders were asked to build, experiment, fail, and succeed! Their Maker's Studio projects were well thought out and engaging.
These young scientists want to be ROCKET SCIENTISTS!
We debated going to Mars in English. We mapped out the cost of the trip in Math. Then we watched Elon Musk's rocket launch on Youtube.
We would love to design, build, and work out the kinks with our own rocket launch. I want them to take part on a rocket launch they will remember for the rest of their lives!
I am sure the entire school would show up for our culminating launch! The younger students could look forward to a 5th grade launch in their futures!
