The Windward High School Community Project is a graduation requirement that stretches learning comfort and can aid the future goals of the students. This project must benefit the community and the student and must include six hours of research and at least 24 hours of hands on work. Because Windward is a community based school it was very important to take a different approach on a senior project by planning it around the community. Some examples of a community project would be teaching a class, fixing a community garden, planning a book drive for donation, etc. Students take a class to teach them how to start and complete their project, and are able to find a mentor to help them along the way with advice and guidance. This project teaches students about how they can help and effect the community around them as well as giving them planning and communication skills when working with others.
