Jackson Hole Community School

Senior Project

Required for graduation, the Senior Project is a capstone and culmination of 12+ years
of learning; an opportunity to investigate personal passions; a showcase for critical thinking skills; and an integral part of every JHCS student's legacy.

All projects have a research, writing, and field work component, and are formally presented at Senior Symposium at the end of the school year. To complete Senior Projects students demonstrate initiative by managing their time independently and effectively, utilizing community resources, and employing scholarly research methods. Students can choose to express their findings with a research paper, as an experiment or by creating a product or performance. Past projects include:

Women’s Healthcare and its Effect on the Wage Gap and Work Place
