Agora 2022

Agora is returning! This year's activities are Nov. 14-18.

Many exciting changes are happening at the Junior/Senior High School. The building is undergoing major changes and renovations. New science facilities have been created, a modern art wing with a Makerspace is in the works, and, at the center of the building, the Foundry—Ottawa Hills’ new learning center—is nearing completion. 

But how will these new spaces and additional resources enhance our collective experience?  How will they encourage us to become lifelong learners? How will they enhance collaboration and empathetic engagement in our community? How will they help to form partnerships that will transform our work and our connections to others and the world? 

These are the essential questions that have driven the changes we see in our building. The obvious answer is to put these ideals into action. Agora 2022 is the perfect opportunity.The theme of Agora 2022 is “World Builders.” Let us consider the week of Nov. 14-18 as an experiment in building new ways of seeing ourselves and our roles and responsibilities in this tradition of excellence that is Ottawa Hills.

I invite each of you to take part in the creation of the Agora experience, to help build it with you at the center, to be a part of shaping  your experiences and the experiences of future students and community members, to help forge a personal connection between you and this place that will last a lifetime. 

—James Kinkaid, Agora coordinator
