High school seniors nearing the completion of 12 years of education have taken a variety of courses and developed an assortment of skills during those years.
The senior year is a time for students to assimilate their knowledge and skills in a senior experience to showcase what they have learned. The project provides an opportunity for students to choose an area of interest, conduct research, and demonstrate problem‐solving, decision making, and independent learning skills.
It contributes to a strong senior year of challenging courses and practical experiences that prepare students for the next step in work and further education, while following the district’s LexLeads, LexLearns, LexLives initiative.
A senior experience involves several steps.
Senior experiences are challenging. In showing what they have learned, they require considerable effort on the part of the students. A good senior experience requires students to plan in order to meet deadlines and manage the project successfully. Students have opportunities to gather information, integrate academic and career/technical studies, develop verbal and nonverbal communication skills, and feel a sense of accomplishment for a job well done.
