High school students are required to complete 30 hours of community service prior to graduation. Community service hours are typically completed during a student's freshman year. One developmental outcome that emerges from community service involvement is citizenship development.
Several of our high school students have chosen to go above and beyond the 30 hour community service requirement. Sophomore, Lexi Goad enjoys animals and has aspirations to be a veterinarian. She not only volunteers her time to run and walk with dogs at the Lucy McKenzie Humane Society, in West Windsor, she also raised $2,300.00 as a participant in their annual 5K-9 run.
