The highgate school in Alabama is a magnet school for students from all walks of life.
And with that, a highgate principal and some parents are taking action.
“We had a lot of support from parents, but a lot more support from our students,” said school principal Michael J. Johnson.
“It was a great experience for them, and a lot that we can take back to the community, which is what I would hope for.
We are doing a lot to support them and help them achieve their goals.”
As part of the initiative, the highgate district is offering students free lunch, and the school is planning to offer an internship program for highschoolers.
The highgate magnet is a unique opportunity for high school students who are already interested in pursuing a career in the fields of technology and engineering.
“This is a way to connect students with the opportunities of high school,” Johnson said.
“We are working hard to create this magnet program so that students can learn to apply technology skills, as well as learn about the business and entrepreneurship opportunities.”
The highgates principal is also encouraging students to have fun.
“You can find a lot, a lot out there that is challenging,” Johnson explained.
“Some of the students are just trying to get into the school.
So if you can find something that is really challenging, it can be a lot.
And they can be fun.”
Johnson is also working with a local high school to make sure students get a free lunch.
The school has also launched an internship project for high-schoolers, and is offering it for free.
Johnson hopes the students can apply their tech skills and business savvy to the field of engineering and create a better high school experience for everyone.
