My Students

Our high school serves students in grades 9-12. We qualify for Title 1 funding, which allows our school to better provide for the students. The funding is used for much-needed tools and resources.

We feature a non-traditional, small-school setting with student-specific learning opportunities and a focus on project-based learning.

The small-school environment and engaging learning plans for students are designed to immerse students in authentic work that interests the student, provide real-world experiences, and allow students to improve 21st Century skills. We offer an exciting, non-traditional approach to help students fulfill state graduation requirements in a four-year time frame.

My Project

A Silhouette Cameo, heat press, and vinyl will help create a Makerspace. Students will be able to create school t-shirts, stickers, and decals to help promote school spirit.

Makerspace is a new method of teaching students in a space where they can get hands-on experience working with concepts they recently learned.

The point of the space is to make, create, and invent new things. There are many advantages to giving students a place to apply concepts, and those benefits are true for all areas and fields of study.

A Makerspace offers something that traditional classes lack. Shop classes and home economics always included an element very similar to a Makerspace and while students may not have performed correctly, it was much easier to understand concepts and how to apply them. Makerspaces take this tool and move it into traditional classes to give students a tactile and kinesthetic experience that shows them how and why a concept works. As the students work through a particular problem, they are encouraged to come up new and innovative ideas. Ultimately, this helps them to understand better and apply what they have learned.
