Exhibition Themes

One of the things that distinguishes Durango Big Picture High School is that our students do exhibitions four times per year.  Parents are required to attend these performances of student learning in December and May.

 

There are 2 types of Exhibitions:  Exhibition Fair and Panel Exhibitions.  The Exhibition Fair is shorter presentation that is done with the student and 2-3 other people and lasts 15 minutes.  Classes rotate so that all grade levels get to see all other grade level presentations.  Panel Exhibitions are longer, more thorough presentations to an entire class of students and last 45-60 minutes. These also have a panel made up of the Advisor, Parent, Mentor, and other Students.
