At High Tech High, I get the chance to educate and mentor a diverse group of dedicated students. This year we have chosen to take our academic advisory to Boston, MA for our college trip! Many of my students have never traveled outside of southern California, and many will also be the first in their families to attend college. This college trip is my chance to show these students a city that has some of the finest universities in the WORLD as well as a fascinating and essential role in American history. Having our students actually visit and see themselves on these campuses is an important part of fulfilling our mission of college readiness for ALL of our students regardless of their backgrounds.
So far, my students and their parents have already fundraised $5,000 of our $10,000 goal! I'm so proud of them and the work they've put in and will continue to put in over the next several weeks. BUT WE STILL NEED YOUR HELP! If you can help get these students closer to visiting Harvard University, Boston University, the Freedom Trail, USS Constitution, Old North Church, Boston Common, and to have a great experience doing so, please take a minute to donate today!
