Kia Reid is a high school senior struggling to balance a difficult home life and a taxing academic career, which was derailed by her and her siblings entry into the foster-care system of Los Angeles, CA. Da Vinci RISE High is a school that serves students who have become disconnected from the traditional school system because of circumstances like homelessness and foster-care placement. Kia’s inspiring journey towards graduation, assisted by the staff and administration of this groundbreaking school, is a true triumph.
