About Tarkington School
- Joined Urban Initiatives’ Work to Play program in the spring of 2011.
- Located in the Marquette Park neighborhood in Chicago and has 1,025 students.
- 79% of the school population is hispanic and 20% is African American. 97% come from low-income households.
- At the end of practice, Coach Villasenor gives the players their "soccer homework”, which is due at the end of the next practice. The students always complete it.
- The students at Tarkington are very passionate about soccer. Many of them play on teams outside of school, and some of them play on as many as three different teams!
