The students in my school come from some of the highest crime rate neighborhoods in the city of Chicago. Many students travel long distances and on multiple buses through dangerous neighborhoods to finally get to school, the place they call home. Students come to my school to find peace, comfort, and safety. Many of the students are being raised in single-parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These students face numerous obstacles daily to receive a quality education.
