For many students, challenges that they can’t control can often feel like limits on all things that are possible. The student with younger siblings to care for at home, with one or both parents at work and no other outside support. The student whose test scores or academic performance might make it easy to write them off as going nowhere, fast. The student who only gets their meals at school. Students that are characterized as “those students.” At Timkin Early College High School (TECHS) in Canton, Ohio those students, and all students who rise to meet the challenge, are given the opportunity to grow and succeed.
