Real-Life Applications for Learning

For the past 10 years, Montpelier High School has seen the value of providing opportunities for students to participate in service activities.

Service learning is any kind of project or unit that takes the curriculum and finds an application and relevance in the community. It gives the learning a specific focus and outcome for a third party. Teachers often find that service learning provides a context for what is being studied in the classroom, and it engages students by making the learning relevant in the real world.
