Highland Park High School – Estudiante to Student Mentor Program
With approximately 17 years of service to the Highland Park and Highwood community, the Estudiante to Student mentoring program remains dedicated to the mission of partnering Latino elementary students with high-achieving Latino high school students who serve as positive academic and social role models. Estudiante to Student historically runs two programs: Future Giants and Rising Stars. The Future Giants program pairs HPHS high school mentors with 8th graders, while the Rising Stars program has HPHS high school mentors working with 6th graders and 7th graders as they explore STEM-related material and courses available for students at HPHS. HPCF funds are used to support programmatic costs that are not covered by Districts 112 and 113.
