The public is invited to the Aldo Leopold Charter School's Internship Showcase on Wednesday, November 29. The event is from 4:30 to 6:00PM. Refreshments will be served. The school is located at 1422 East Highway 180, next to the Grant County Administration Building.

The Internship Showcase is a wonderful way to see our school's mission in action. Aldo Leopold is a tuition free Public Charter School. We serve students in grades 6 through 12.

The Internship Showcase displays the efforts of 65 students in grades 10-12, who have been spending every Friday this semester working with local businesses, non-profits and government agencies. Thirty-five students have worked on one of six Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) crews: Archaeology Site Stewardship, Eco Monitoring, Murals with MRAC's Youth Mural Program, Watershed Keepers, ALCS Garden, and Trails at Dragonfly. Other students have been learning various skills by working with mentors in careers such as information technology, physical therapy, elementary school education, engineering, veterinarian care, welding and architecture. At the showcase, all interns will give presentations about their internship or YCC experience.

Aldo Leopold Charter School's mission is to provide an engaging and challenging educational experience. Our educational programs emphasize inquiry-based learning, fieldwork, stimulation of the creative process, and stewardship of our community and natural environment.

School representatives will be on hand to answer any questions you may have about enrollment or our lottery system. If you are interested in learning more out our unique approach to public education, please attend this informative event.
