AP with WE Service: InsideOut
RFH High School windows as well as popular businesses around town, hosted these dynamic photos. The RFH Foundation funded an AP Art History and AP French dual project entitled CHANGEMAKING: FROM CLASSROOM TO COMMUNITY. Students and teachers demonstrate the correlation between what we feel inside and what we show on the outside.
Establish Genetics & Genomics Biolab
The world of genetics and genomics is evolving at the fastest pace we have seen yet in any period of scientific discovery. With this in mind it is proposed that we update RFH's genetics and genomics education capabilities by setting up a new laboratory. In addition to the mobile genLab there will be opportunity for students to access and gain hands-on experience with this state-of-the-art technology. By supplementing the school's current electrophoresis equipment with PCR technology for DNA amplification, and more current digital genome sequencing equipment students will be able to experience and participate in a real world scientific endeavor. Ultimately the goal is to give our students an edge over others competing for STEM college seats and scholarships.
El Barrio Art & Mercado Little Spain Tours, NYC
AP Spanish students examined how El Barrio’s identity is defined and reflected through its public art, murals, and gardens. Film Club students documented the events of the day, taking video of student presentations at each of the street art stops. They then compiled and edited the videos to share with RFH Spanish classes, the Rumson Fair Haven Foundation, and parents. AP students were then able use the final video as a review for the cultural comparison component on the AP Spanish Language and Culture Exam.
