Why the Senior Project?


The Oregon State Board requires each school district to meet certain standards in order to have a credited high school diploma. For Astoria School District we meet some of those essential skills through the Senior Project. They call these skills the need to succeed in the world.


The senior project is a wonderful opportunity to meet some of these skills through something that you are passion about. The senior project is something to look forward to.


The senior project should meet the following essential skills:


1. Extended Application: Students will apply and extend their knowledge in new and complex situations related to the student’s personal and career interests and post high school goals through critical thinking, problem solving, or inquiry in real world contexts.


2. Speak and present publicly: Peer and board presentations.


3. Demonstrate civic and community engagement.


4. Demonstrate career related learning: Personal management, teamwork, organization, and keeping deadlines for project and paperwork.


5. Think critically and analytically, including problem solving.


6. Participate in situations that connect classroom learning with real life experiences in the workplace, community.


7. The project is a way you can use technology either directly with your project or through your presentation.
