    QUEST (12th Grade Benchmark)

    QUEST is a five-component project designed and completed by all Irvington seniors. The students start with a Question that will lead to an exploration of a social issue of personal choice. As they research, they build Understanding of the issue through internet and database searches, reading, writing, and hands on Experiences designed and performed with their consultants.  Action-oriented Experiences include volunteering, interviewing, attending training and meetings, focused observations, etc. Through Service, the students design and implement activities which allow them to share and apply their new knowledge to serve a population in need, and reach out to their public officials to advocate for policies and legislation. Finally, at the Testimony, the students present their entire QUEST to a panel of staff, parents and community members.
