Samuel L. Gompers High School is a continuation high school located in Richmond, CA. Students attending Gompers High were not successful at the comprehensive high schools. Many of these students have never played an instrument before.According to Mabiba and Carolyn, the students very engaged and and did a fabulous job of drumming and dancing and a good time was had by all.
Students and staff have asked Principal Latoya Williams to continue this working relationship and allow for percussion to be a course offering at Gompers High School. The look forward to celebrating the drum at Gompers High!
We are thrilled that this first program was such a resounding success, thanks to our wonderful teachers and the fabulous students and faculty.
