“If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything.”
This terrific project hangs in the entrance to the top floor of the Commons. All 9th graders do an advocacy project as part of their participation in our Rights & Responsibilities class.

What to advocate for? It’s up to each student—and that’s part of the value: figuring out what you really care about, and then how to be helpful to that cause.

In this case, the cause is rural poverty, and as you can see, this student’s done a ton of homework on causes, diversity in rural America, how it affects schooling, what opportunities and support there may be…and more.
