Community School Seniors - Gallery Walk May 26

This weekend we have a special treat for those living and visiting the community. During the community Gallery Walk we will be showing some of the senior projects from Community School's seniors.

During their senior year, Community School students have the option to create a senior project which showcases an overview of a diverse personal interest that each student has individually explored or discovered during their senior year.

The projects on display range from local wilderness excursions to high fashion modeling in New York City, and beyond. Please join us at 291 North Main Street, (Sun Valley Sotheby's International Realty) on Saturday May 26, from 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm for a reception during the community Gallery Walk.

The seniors projects will be on display from now until June 4th. Please feel free to stop by during our office hours to view their work. Don't miss the chance to learn a bit more about some of the people in our community! Visit for more information.

Various Project Images

Community School's mission is to engage students of diverse talents in an intellectually challenging and supportive school culture. We endeavor to foster in our students self-confidence, integrity, responsibility to their community and environment, and a life-long passion for learning.
