Friday, March 30th proved New Design students really do rock! Michael Ealy came back after this weeks amazing Master Classes to work privately with our 11th grade English students. The kids really worked their magic as Michael helped us work through scenes from Their Eyes Were Watching God. The whole workshop was a blast and we thank Michael for coming back and Working Playground for the support!

Last Friday New Design Students traveled to the Center For Architecture for a DESIGN DAY. The topic of the day was activating the NDHS floor so it looks more like a design school. Architects from Sage and Coombe showed their designs of library renovations. Their work hightlighted how activate spaces with graphics, lights, and architectural elements. David and Macalay then worked with our students to enhance their visions for the future of the school floor.
