As the school year comes to a wrap, the focus on campus sways towards the future. Schedule forms were handed out, students began choosing future classes, and curriculum night was held Jan 27. to keep both students and parents informed.

A wide range of topics are covered every year during the annual academic fair, from information for incoming freshman to upcoming seniors planning to dual enroll. Every grade and level of intelligence has auditorium sessions and tables set up to provide useful information regardless of where the child stands academically.
One new feature at curriculum night was showcasing the school’s modeling and simulation program of emphasis. The cafeteria was filled with robots and obstacle courses displaying products of the Robotics Team, encouraging students to take interest in the growing program.

The auxiliary gym held department tables with teachers from each subject answering questions from curious students, as well as current students working to promote their classes and clubs. Debate team and interior design handed out advertisements, while classes such as American Sign Language passed out flyers for students wanting to sign the ABC’s.

Prospective AP students learned how to prepare their time wisely and handle the rigor of their classes. Upcoming seniors learned their diploma pathways and graduation requirements, while incoming freshman learned everything they need to start high school successfully.

“I was very pleased with the turnout, as well as all of the teachers and students who put time and effort into making the night successful,” Jesse Walker, who organized the event, said.
Overall, curriculum night boasted a crowd of parents and students taking interest in their academics and staying involved with the school.
