Reflecting upon my Rockhurst High School experience, a few highlights come to my mind:

  • Playing freshmen football (‘playing’ might be too strong of a word)
  • Competing in the chess room EVERY activity period and EVERYday after school
  • Studying Physics/Playing Nintendo64 Mario Kart for 6+ hours at a friend’s house in order to prepare for a Dr. Campisano exam.

The Rockhurst Vision Statement claims to “foster lifelong friendships”.

One of projects within the STEAM initiative is the Classroom Redesign.

Ultimately, the goal aims to create a more student-centered learning environment emphasizing collaboration – one of the core values of STEAM.

  • There will be no ‘front of the classroom’.
  • Flexible furniture provides more autonomy for students.
  • Cutting edge technology empower learning activities.
