My Students

Our school will prepare 100% of our scholars for high school in hopes of them all graduating high school and moving forward to college and career readiness.

Our mission is to increase high school graduation rates by providing a supportive and flexible learning environment that challenges every learner to find their voice and to exercise choice as they design their own pathways to success.

Our school implements a different teaching/learning model based on the processes that lead to growth. Our students belong to underserved communities in West Philadelphia.

My Project

My students are the best West Philadelphia students ever. They come from diverse backgrounds and different socio economic families. Sometimes this makes it super difficult for everyone to have the basic supplies. Supplies like a pencil, paper, eraser, or crayons would mean the world to some of my students who don't have any of these. With these supplies they can complete their homework and do in class activities. So many of our hands on activities require items like scissors, crayons and pencils. These things would encourage a much more fun classroom and we all know that if kids are having fun they don't necessarily realize they are learning.
