Back in 2011, I visited this school among other Mexican Secondary teachers during a summer course in Chicago, Illinois.
The idea was to see the American school system and facilities.
I was totally mesmarized. The school has a population of 90% of latinamericans, most of them mexican born or mexican parents. Most of the kids are fluently bilingual.
The security is quite tight with metal detector, a police officer (no kidding!) and no-Converse policy. Supposedly, there is a gang code in the color you paint your converse shoes or something like that. This kid had a knife as a drill.
In Mexico, just a headache and someone call you mom to pick you up. Most school don’t have a school doctor or nurse.
Since it was summer, there weren’t a lot of kids. Except, for the summer school. This kids were from different schools in the districts. I just love what it says in the t-shirt.
The most terrible detail that this school has: IT’S a normal simple PUBLIC school!!!! ( big sarcasm sign)
