Experiential Education allows students to test what they have learned in real settings and to learn how to learn from the experiences they have.
Students are expected to perform 20 hours of community service each year they are at Linworth. These hours can be in the school or in the larger community in programs that currently exist or opportunities created by the students.
Interim is a week-long, preapproved independent study for our freshmen, sophmores and juniors. Students use Interim to explore careers, interests or academic pusuits in ways that they could not work in a normal classroom setting.
Walkabout, for our second semester seniors, consists of two nine-week placements where students complete their high school education in real world settings. While not funded by the district, students may go out of town, out of state or out of the country for Walkabout if suitable placements and housing can be found. Walkabout calls on students to reflect on what they know, what they are learning, and what they need to know to move forward after high school. In addition to the time at the placement site, it requires extensive journal writing and a weekly seminar for those students in central Ohio.
