A senior legacy project is embedded into their senior year of high school in the Colonial School District. After receiving approval for a project (completed during the students spring semester, junior year and approved by a Senior Project panel), students are expected to complete all Senior Project components by the spring semester of their senior year. This project may include an internship with a local business, either on or off campus. Students and staff use a Project-based learning (PBL) approach to complete this task. Each student is asked to select a four-person advisory board – three WPHS staff and one local business or professional person. This is done primarily through the English Department.
