THE CAPSTONE EXPERIENCE The junior year Capstone Experience is an opportunity for interested, motivated juniors to personalize their learning and explore an area of personal passion. Students involved in the program identify a real-world problem or opportunity and develop a unique solution to address the problem or fill a void. Solutions can take the form of prototypes, lesson plans, awareness campaigns, documentary films, art or music performances, or another creative final product. Students work on their projects independently under the guidance of a teacher and community mentor. Students create a website and blog to document their process, market their final product, and demonstrate their research. As a culminating experience, students showcase their projects for the Marvelwood community and may be able to participate in the statewide Exposition.

ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE (ESL) Marvelwood’s ESL Program is designed to help international students gain fluency in all areas of language: speaking, listening, reading, and writing. ESL classes are studentcentered, utilizing an approach that includes pair work, group work, and oral presentations. Marvelwood is certified as a TOEFL testing center.
