The Senior Exhibition is a graduation requirement designed to showcase student achievement through a representation of the qualities the school values: academics, character and service as well as independent thinking and personal responsibility. Students will be guided through their exhibition project throughout senior year in their English class.
In the course of the project students will be required to develop an “Essential Question” about a social issue, research the origins, causes and possible solutions to the problem, write a research paper and conduct a sustainable service project that relates to their research. Along the way seniors will develop skills in communicating, in project design and implementation, in organizing, in time management and in mentoring. The final exhibition is presented to staff, students, parents and the community in a celebration of their achievement.
