    Our Mission

    The mission is to provide enriched classroom experiences that will be rigorous, standards-based, culturally-relevant, interdisciplinary, and differentiated to meet the needs of diverse learners.  Teachers will utilize research based strategies for effective and motivational instruction.  This innovative model of education will allow students to make meaningful contributions to a global society during their time at Mid-City's Prescott School of Enriched Sciences and beyond.

Please read the essay by Antonio  and you will understand why he deserved to be one of the winners of the contest:  

        "I think the book Chef Roy Choi and the Street Food Remix is an unbelievable and stunning book because the descriptions and illustrations make me want to try foods I have never eaten before. I like how poetry is used to describe delicious food. For example, the author vividly described preparing tacos by writing, “Sizzle. Grill short ribs. Slap the taco down. Toss on slaw, squirt Roy’s Awesome Sauce.” I also enjoyed reading the colorful definitions of foods. After reading the definition of “Banchan,” I wanted to try these dishes. In addition to the writing, the illustrations are really artistic and show parts of life that I have never seen before, such as scenes of people eating street food. I learned many new things from reading this book. One scene that really stuck with me was when Roy Choi said eating a nice meal with his family was his happiest time. Similarly, I am also happiest when I spend time eating meals with my family. Like Roy’s family, my family eats dumplings, talks about our lives, and laughs. Spending time with my family is also my “best good time!” It would mean a lot to meet the author June Jo Lee because I would like to ask her questions about how she fit in with people who were different than her. I am one of only a few Asian kids at my school. Other kids used to tell me I ate “strange foods” for lunch. Once, my mom packed me a steamed bun with meat and vegetables. Some of my classmates called it a “Chinese Taco.” But after describing this food, we all laughed, and that was what brought us together. I want to know if the author had similar experiences and if she has any good tips for me."  -Antonio D. Chow - 4th Grade - Ms. Felhauer's Class
