The Shawnee Mission School District invites middle and high school students and their families to the annual Signature Program Open House, to be held from 5:30pm-7:30pm on Tuesday, January 15, 2019, at the Center for Academic Achievement (8200 W. 71st Street).
This open house offers an opportunity for students and their families to learn more about the district’s Signature Programs.
The Signature Programs provide unique opportunities for students in the areas of:
- Animation and Game Design
- Culinary Arts and Baking
- Engineering (Project Lead the Way)
- Health Science
- Law, Public Safety, & Security (Project Blue Eagle)
- International Baccalaureate (offered at Shawnee Mission East, North, and Northwest)
Those attending the open house will have the opportunity to visit our state-of-the-art classrooms and labs, speak with instructors and current students, and learn about options for creating flexibility in their high school schedules to allow time for enrollment in coursework.
In addition to the Signature Program Open House, students and their families can learn more about these opportunities at https://www.smsd.org/academics/signature-programs. The website includes short video introductions to each program and instructor contact information. The counselors at your student’s middle and/or high school also serve as a tremendous resource in helping your child develop a dynamic and individualized high school experience to help them explore their areas of interest.
