The Commons Project is a complex undertaking, involving students in grades 9 through 12, teachers in multiple disciplines, and a design and construction schedule that spans four years. Students involved in building and landscaping the commons receive elective credits in their Commons Construction and Horticulture classes. Students on the Commons Committee and Student Council receive leadership credits. Activities such as data entry and brochure design contribute to students' credits in their Business and Computer Projects classes. A sample of the schedule to complete the project is as follows: assessment
