It’s a busy time at Princeton High School with AP exams in full swing, seniors ordering caps and gowns, and fields full of lacrosse and field hockey teams. Meanwhile, behind temporary walls, there is a parallel universe where entire portions of the building are being transformed.

Two Princeton High School faculty members, Nipurna Shah and Paul Song, run a program for Asian-American students that has been a beacon of support both for current students and the program's alumni. The curriculum, which is modeled on AWARE (Asian Women's Action for Resilience and Empowerment) at Boston University, has been adapted to be both gender neutral and appropriate for high school students by Ms. Shah and Mr. Song.

“We call them ‘social justice warriors’,” says Princeton High School Principal Jessica Baxter of the students who have taken the school’s racial literacy course, an elective taught by Joy Barnes-Johnson and Patricia Manhart. “Nobody leaves the course as they enter it. They want to do more.”

For junior Faria Majeed, doing more meant working with fellow students to found a social justice club called C.A.R.E., for Cultural and Racial Equity. CARE gives students opportunities to discuss and advance perspectives gleaned from the class and from students’ own research. “Our goal is to educate within the PHS community,” Faria says. “Being racially literate is an essential skill that is so important for, not only present day America, but future America.”
