Students, families and community members will have a unique opportunity to “discover” Burnsville High School on Tuesday, Nov. 1, getting a first-hand look at the school after Vision One91-related changes that include new facilities and the launch of “Pathways” programming.
At DiscoverBHS Night, attendees will be able to take student-led or self-guided tours of the school’s new learning spaces, learn more about “Pathways” programming that prepares students for career and college, see some of those programs in action, and hear from current students.
“We are so proud of what we’re able to offer students that we want families and community members to see it for themselves,” said Principal Dave Helke. “The range of programs that are available now, the expansion of technology, our entire approach to preparing students for career and college — there’s a lot to discover at BHS.”
- 5-6 p.m. – Self-guided tours
- 6 p.m. – Informational program & student panel
- 6:30-8 p.m. – Self-guided or student-led tours; activity/athletics information tables; classroom demonstrations; much more!
Attendees can take self-guided tours of the school starting at 5 p.m. At 6 p.m., a presentation in the commons area will highlight the many changes made possible by the community’s support of the Vision One91 referendum in 2015. A panel of students and teachers will discuss their experiences at the school.
After the presentation, visitors can continue with student-led or self-directed tours. Featured stops on the tour include the newly constructed areas such as the fabrication and STEM labs, flexible and technology-enhanced classrooms, automotive lab, expanded commons area and new activities center, as well as already existing spaces such as the video production studio, Mraz Center for performing arts, and the career center.
