Greater Educational Milestones (GEMs) seeks to find, advocate and support highly motivated and qualified students of color from South Los Angeles, Watts, Inglewood, and Compton. Through outreach in these communities, GEMs identifies and brings awareness to the educational opportunities available to these students. GEMs serves as a resource to our Partner Schools while providing educational and/or financial support.
Dear English Teacher: Recommendations are vital components in the GEMs application process. Partner Schools will use this information to determine if a student is a perfect fit for their community. Your assessment will help the Partner Schools evaluate an array of characteristics about the prospective student. We appreciate you taking the time to complete these forms. A student cannot continue in the process unless your recommendation has been completed and submitted. Please take the time to evaluate the applicant by filling in the information below. Please know that the professional comments you share are held in STRICTEST CONFIDENCE, and do not become part of a student's permanent record. We thank you in advance for the help your comments will provide.
