My Students

Studies have shown that we will need more health care professionals in the next 10 years. Help our students begin their path to becoming a health care professional.

Our school is an early college prep high school.

All of our students desire to go to college and become successful professionals. It is our goal to create a Human Anatomy and Physiology class to help our students begin their path to becoming a health care professional.

My Project

Your donation will help us to provide students with the materials needed to learn through doing. It is one thing to read about science in a textbook, but it is another thing to actually do it. Having the ability to see human DNA and slides of human tissue, students can see the human body firsthand and see how our bodies work. We will be able to help students engage and learn though doing. Our science department believes in learning through doing. Being able to see, touch and do will encourage our students to understand the human body.

Your donation will make a difference in helping students become better prepared for college.

You donation will impact our students and help them become even more successful. I have personally seen students come into science not liking the subject but come away with a renewed desire to learn because of the hands-on experience. It is our goal to help students enter the medical field in some form. Help a student realize their dream to become a health care professional.
