Senior Portfolio


In order to graduate, students must complete their Senior Portfolio in addition to their required classes. 

The Senior Portfolio is a Graduation Requirement for Rudsdale High School.  The goal is to pick 4-5 pieces of work that you are proud of that demonstrate your learning and growth here at Rudsdale.  

The projects should all be gathered in a Google Folder.  If you want to include larger projects or artwork, you will have to take a picture to include in your Google Folder.  You will do a Google Presentation about the projects you choose, what skills you learned and how you’ve grown.
