My Students

The students at my school are extremely dedicated and strive to achieve in each and every way. As you walk through our hallways, you hear the voices of the world. We have such an array of diversity that it makes our school very unique and multi-cultural.

Our vision is to prepare every student to be academically successful and socially responsible in an ever-changing and unpredictable world.

We strive to provide a safe learning community dedicated to high expectations for every student.

My Project

A drone can be used to not only take beautiful pictures but to tell exciting stories. Drones could also unveil new and compelling ideas and perspectives through aerial photography.

A flying camera Illustrates different points of view for students.

Taking photos of little-seen areas of the school or sending the drone up during gym class could record students at play.

We are asking for a drone so that we could tell stories about our school from a different point of view. We feel that, in many ways, a drone could inspire project-based learning projects which could improve student engagement and social awareness.
