The Peace Project involves Mendham High School students visiting our school and demonstrating through role-playing, discussions, and other experiential learning exercises on how to “find and use your voice” to take positive action that makes a difference. These techniques help our students to continue the message of kindness through action and taught skills involving non-violent assertiveness. Ongoing drug and alcohol awareness and prevention curriculums are offered to the upper grades.
