SAN DIEGO — The Elementary Institute of Science will hold a graduation Friday for students from four local high schools in its “Girls Take Flight” drone training program.
The girls will be honored for their completion of the Federal Aviation Administration’s Remote Pilot Certification. They will also receive a $1,250 stipend for completing the program and a $250 bonus for earning the certification, allowing them to purchase their own drones.
EIS chose 10 students for the 32-week program, during which they learn to build and program drones and, ultimately, fly them. Students who attend America’s Finest Charter, Crawford High School, Gompers Preparatory Academy, Hoover High School, Lincoln High School, Morse High School and O’Farrell Charter School are eligible, according to EIS.
“Girls Take Flight is very rigorous,” drone instructor Anjelica Thang said. These girls who are graduati...
In light of the fact that San Diego Unified Schools have closed March 16 through April 5, our high school will be closing as well. Our students will be staying home and receiving their education virtually for the next two weeks. Teachers met with students today to describe for them how they would be receiving their work and instruction. Students were also given an opportunity to check out a chromebook to use during our time away from campus. The students are responsible for the chromebook while they have it in their possession and will need to pay for it if it is lost or damaged. Some teachers sent home packets of materials that the students will be expected to complete. Most teachers will be using Google Classroom or some other platform which the students use currently. Your student will need to work at least 2 to 4 hours per day to keep up with their school work. Please remind them that they are not on vacation and need to do their schoolwork. The teachers will be avai...

The newly revamped JFS Teen Leadership Program is a place for all students, grades 9-12, to learn about issues affecting their communities, develop skills to make lasting impact on topics they are passionate about, and make new relationships with like-minded peers.

Youth participants will get to participate in specially designed volunteer projects and develop their own project to influence their community.
