What is a Senior Project?
The Senior Project is a “learning stretch” final assignment. Basically, the purpose is to ask each student to take the learning he/she has acquired over thirteen years of public education and add to it. The project requires students to research, design and present a project that reflects their interests, knowledge and skills gained in school and their vision for the future.
