My Students

As a newly opened charter school there are many pros such as, newly constructed facilities, smaller class sizes, and more diversity among students.

The students that we serve are an amazing group of young people that are excited about learning.

At any given time you can walk in on students feverishly raising their hands prepared to give an answer, or cheering loudly as a class to support a classmates success. They are incredible students, and they deserve the most incredible things.

My Project

Although there are a lot of positives to attending a charter school, there are some drawbacks. One drawback is the lack of financial freedom. So much of our money is allocated to operational expenses (eg. construction, utilities, water, contracts, etc. ) that essential classroom supplies are often overlooked. We rely mainly on parent and community donations to provide supplies, with our own pockets as our safety net.

It's hard to buy a full class set of calculators when expected to use our own money.

We have a few, but there are many students that go without because there are not enough to go around. Calculators are an essential part of 8th grade math mastery. These calculators are approved for use on the End of Grade Exam, and schools with more access have a 1:1 ratio of calculators to students. We want to be able to give our students the same access to resources as students in other schools. We believe that solving the calculator deficiency issue will put us on the path to greatness.
