The Staples High School community inspires learning, fosters integrity, and nurtures empathy.

End Products

No matter the design of the student's Independent Learning Experience, all participants will create an end product to represent each student's learning. The student will present this end product at the conclusion of their Independent Learning Experience in front of a committee comprised of educators, including a subject-specific content specialist; administrators; and guidance counselors.
