ISDS (International Skills Diploma Seal) is a program that students can undertake starting their sophomore year. Students gain cultural awareness and appreciation, global communication skills, and an appreciation of their own culture through cultural experiences, internationally focused service hours, and a capstone project their senior year. We brought in judges from Carroll County (including professors from West Georgia) to evaluate the capstone projects of our seniors. The top scoring student (based on knowledge of their country of research, thoroughness, creativity and overall presentation) was awarded the title of ISDS Star Student and was able to go to Atlanta for the awards ceremony.

March 2018 We just finished up the Urinary System. The students had fun dissecting kidneys and noticed that the cow kidney (externally) looks very different than the sheep (or human!) kidneys. They also looked specifically at the Bowman's capsule that helps to filter our blood. So they had to "make" their own urine to see the how the filtration process worked. ​
