Abstract

There is no doubt that Latinx students are underrepresented here at IMSA. Our goal of this project is to show that there needs to be more support for Latinx students here at IMSA. A lot of us come from low economic backgrounds, our past education is different therefore making our IMSA experience and education different. We will be looking at various factors, such as grades, hometowns, current classes, SAT scores, involvement (clubs/extracurricular activities), and much more. We could perhaps conduct interviews with current Latinx students to get their take on the “IMSA experience,” and how they’d like to see the school change. Of course, all this data would be anonymous as many might now feel uncomfortable with sharing that information. By the end of this project, we would hope that administrators start looking into more Latinx representation. This could come in the forms of hiring more Latinx staff, teaching Latinx curriculum, etc.,
