Jamaica Plain Schools Benefit from Gift of Computers

In her job as headmaster for Margarita Muñiz Academy, Dania Vázquez knew that one of the more pressing needs for her high school students was the ability to use computer technology to conduct research and complete homework. “Every single one of our school computers is in continual use every single day,“ said Vázquez. On Oct. 4th, that need was sharply reduced with the unwrapping of 20 laptop computers at the Jamaica Plain school were given as a donation from the Boston real estate firm City Realty. The Muñiz Academy, the first dual language high school in the Boston Public School system, was one of five area schools and organizations to receive a total of 100 computers.
