 What is Senior Project?

Senior Project is a NSHS Graduation Requirement that affords students the opportunity to gain a rich and authentic learning experience in any field or topic of interest to them.

 

Senior Project is broken down into the following components:

  • at least 15 hours of fieldwork completed under the guidance of a mentor who is an expert in the area of study
  • a 6-8 page research paper that links to the fieldwork
  • a completed Senior Project Portfolio
  • a 10-15 minute culminating presentation of the work the student has done
