The LMHS Senior Project is an individualized experience-based research project centered on a student's interest. The project develops, evolves, and is given structure during the school year. As part of the project, students are given the opportunity to spend three weeks during May, (the experiential phase), in the community building relationships with adults, directing their own learning, and expanding their research all centered around their chosen interest. Students are supported in this effort by faculty that teach field research tools and serve as individual advisors. A mentor guides the student's learning during the experiential phase. As a culminating event, each student is responsible to present what he or she learned from their project to a designated panel.
Goals of Project:
- To help students to transition from high school to their post high school experience.
- To provide students an opportunity to explore an interest and organize a project.
- To provide students an opportunity to acquire field research skills and cultivate attitudes and dispositions for self-directed learning.
- To provide students an opportunity to reflect on and document their process of learning.
