FUND A NEED 2023 – AMHS Turns 35!
As AMHS celebrates 35 years as the premiere Catholic High School in Snohomish County, we are in critical need of upgrades to our classrooms to give our students the best possible experience. While our creative and talented faculty already deliver high quality instruction grounded in 21st century learning skills, our furniture and aesthetics remain stuck in the past. We want our classroom environments to communicate the tremendous depth of care and engaging curriculum that differentiates AMHS from other schools. Unfortunately, our furnishings and many of our classrooms are not on par with peer schools. In fact, many of our desks reflect a design popularized in the 1970s. Classrooms of the 21st century prioritize team work, collaboration, and integration of technology. Our classroom furniture is not only outdated but clunky, limiting more collaborative arrangements. Student comfort supports a sense of safety and engagement in learning. Improved ergonomics will provide better integration of technology in instruction, such as student laptop use. Students engaging in high quality, modern instruction deserve a modernized physical classroom environment to honor their high level work.
