My Students

We are a regional Workforce Development STEAM public school in its first year. Our students come to us from ten different feeder high schools, forming a diverse student population with many needs and loads of potential. Students completed an application process to come to our school, and no student was denied based on GPA or test scores. Once they were accepted, students selected a specific "college" of focus that matches their career interest, so students are taking not only the Kentucky core curriculum classes but also career classes to give them experiences that mirror and prepare them for their chosen field. Students are enrolled in one of six "colleges": Biomedical, Pre-Nursing, Engineering, Education, Design, or Computer Science.

In order to complete this rigorous course of study, most of our students are taking college-level and online courses, which demand great focus, persistence, and determination to succeed.

Most of these students are first generation college students; however, these students will succeed with the support of parents, staff, and our local and broader communities.

My Project

In this new school, stress levels are high among students, who are learning to manage a heavy course load in a new environment. Our district values social-emotional learning as an important focus that can help students learn to cope with their emotions and relationships so that they can set goals, act responsibly, and care for others.

In this project, we will make mind maps for goal setting, decorate and regularly write in gratitude journals, and color in adult coloring books; students will experience the silence of their thoughts as they do these activities one hour per week in our year-long mindfulness project.
