It's time for the Tinsley decision to go. East Palo Alto needs to build the kids in East Palo Alto their own high school so that they don't feel like visitors when they attend high school. Staff it with talented teachers and start acting like a real city.

I am proud to have had the opportunity to attend high school with students from my own community. Growing up and attending schools through the Tinsley Transfer Program and switching over to a school as unique as East Palo Alto Academy High School showed me to love myself and my community much more than I could have ever imagined. The invisible boundaries between East Palo Alto and Palo Alto must end. The students of East Palo Alto need to be valued as the ones in our neighboring communities. As a graduate of the class of 2008 at EPAAHS, I hope to demolish these ongoing issues along with others who are also willing to fight for an equal education.

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
