My Students

Our school has the privilege to serve and provide creative opportunities that help young people discover — or rediscover — a love of learning, catch up on coursework, and graduate from high school.

Our students have faced very real barriers to success in school but our alternative pathway allows our community to RISE!

Through Resilience, Integrity, Scholarship, and Empowerment, students can graduate with a high school diploma, an educational plan, knowledge, skills, and the support to achieve their goals as a lifelong learner, in their education, career, and civic participation.

What makes me most proud to serve at this school is that our students have a strong sense of community to support one another. My students know that each of them face a number of battles, some which many know nothing about - yet they do their best to come to school each day not only for themselves but to motivate their peers to greatness.

My Project

Living and going to school in the city means that all of our students commute to school via public transportation. We have students that travel up to an hour or more to get back and forth from school. Luckily, we are able to provide them with a free bus/train pass; however, we can not always control the conditions our students commute in.

Often times our students worry about their commute to school during inclement weather because they do not have the appropriate outerwear to keep them warm and dry.

This project will alleviate one less barrier for our students to make it to school and feel prepared to learn.
