  • Teachers: If you have students who completed a Capstone Project please send me the list with a description of the project before last day of school. Here is the criteria for the Capstone Project:


    Successfully Complete a Capstone Project The Glossary of Education Reform defines a capstone project as a multifaceted assignement that serves as a culminating academic and intellectual experience for students, typically during their final year of high school, or at the end of an academic program or learning-pathway experience. The Glossary of Education Reform further states that capstone projects are generally designed to encourage students to think critically, solve challengeing problems, and develop skills such as oral communication, public speakin, research skills, media literacy, teamwork, planning, self-sufficiency, or goal setting (i.e., skills that will help prepare them for college, modern careers, and adult life).
