An intensive to be

DSC00105

For the past week students at the Expeditionary Learning School for Community Leaders(Leaders), have been given a break from their normal curriculum courses and are currently on their last day  of ‘substitute’ classes( intensives). Recently there has been news of a final presentation for each intensive taking place. What form they will take is for the most part unknown. Here is a sample of what one class has been doing for the past week:

Before this class has been visiting colleges within the state of New York and gathering information about how the application process works, now they are seeing what opportunities a full education could give them. Meanwhile others have started to put together their final presentations. Hopefully they will all have put in a great amount of effort to make it so that theirs stand out against the rest!
