My Students

We are a culturally diverse, rural eighth through twelfth-grade high school. Our school has embraced the concept of a flex-mod schedule. Students can fit anywhere from six to eight classes into their schedule allowing more time for AP classes, college-credit classes, electives, and CTE (career and technical education) courses. Students are given at least four hours personal learning time (PLT) throughout the week which they can use as they choose to complete homework, work in groups with their peers or meet with teachers during "office hours."

We have high expectations for our students; meaning we want them to leave high school fully prepared for whatever they have chosen, whether it be college, vocational or straight into a career field.

Our Core Beliefs and Mission statement for our school is “My Plan My Future”.

My Project

Since moving into our current high school building 6 years ago, money has been very tight. We have had to search for other ways to fund our activities or simply do without. One of the things we have had to abandon is the purchase of large butcher paper. Last year we were able to have a few rolls funded and our students were estatic!

We have to beg paper from other buildings and purchase paper from supply stores out of our own pocket in order to carry out our artistic endeavors.

In addition, our teachers have had to cut back on visual presentation requirements on their assignments because we do not have the supplies to offer the students. This project will help to allow the creativity of our students and faculty to again fill our halls with art and turn our boring walls and halls into a visual art fantasy land!
