An In-Depth Journey to Complete 8th Grade

The eighth grade projects mark the passage from where students have been, from elementary school into middle school and about to move on to high school. At this crucial age when they are beginning to define themselves and who they want to be, they are asked to define an interest of theirs and try to find a mentor in the community that they can work with.
