Grade 8 – Capstone Presentations

As part of a long-standing Flint Hill tradition, each student in eighth grade will deliver a presentation on a personal or meaningful topic to their classmates in the Olson Theater. Following a process that is built into the school day and mentored by faculty and staff, students will engage in structured reflection, creatively develop their ideas, and learn and practice effective public speaking and presentation skills. In this tangible expression of our vision statement, we encourage students to be creative and true to themselves as they select their topic, refine their narrative, and craft their delivery. The Capstone Presentation is a community-building experience and the culmination of personal and intellectual development throughout Middle School.
