Society and Me is Cushman High School’s highly engaging required program that is designed to facilitate students development as agents and innovators of change. As students research and become exposed to issues of our time, they pose a big question for the world to answer while framing a local challenge question on which they create a solution. Through partnerships, internships and the underpinning of required core competency classses such as Design, Art and Technology, Society and Constitutional Law, Communication techniques and Financial Management, students are able to apply knowledge in unique ways to solve complex issues that contribute to making the lives of others and the world a better place. With 188 students in our high school, there are 188 issues being addressed!
