Over the summer months the high school business lab underwent a complete remodel. The space, which used to be made up of built in work spaces, is now a multi-purpose classroom where students can gather and collaborate on various projects. The room still houses the same amount of technology, but the space is organized in a much more inviting, business like matter. This isn't the only high school flexible seating classroom this year. Ms. Weber, Spanish and AP English, teacher also transformed her classroom into a non-traditional, deskless learning space. We're excited to see how these learning environments benefit our high school level students. If you didn't make it in to the open house, we encourage you to stop by to see our innovative new learning spaces! #cardinalpride #HSCcardinals
