    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.  The Senior Project is an independent, student-selected project.
