My Students

Our school is nothing short of amazing! We have a 75% percent gifted population with 25% being regular education students. Over 50% of the students have free or reduced-price lunch.

Our students love art, PE, music, and every academic subject.

Gifted, talented, special education, refugees, ALE, and regular education students are all under one roof. We have specialized art and music teachers for the talented. We offer strings for fourth and fifth graders while offering extra tutoring for students who need to catch up.

My Project

Imagine walking into your classroom, choosing your book and sitting on a comfy floor chair to read while the lights are dimmed. Your fellow book club members are sitting around you while you discuss your book in a happy environment.

Everything, from the color of the walls to the arrangement of the desks, sends impressions to students and can affect the way a student learns.

Creating a positive learning environment is essential for success in the classroom. Teachers should create a welcoming atmosphere where student feel safe and willing to share.

A reading classroom needs to feel safe, creative, and comfortable. Comfortable seating and soft lightning will not only look beautiful but will enhance learning as well.
