8th Grade Visits the Courthouse
Following their study of American Government, 8th grade students were able to put their learning to good use at the Orange County Courthouse. Each year, Judge Wilfredo Martinez hosts a mock trial with our students in a real courtroom. Students are given roles for every part of a real trial including judge, jury members, prosecutors, bailiffs, defense attorneys, the plaintiff and the defendant. This is an example of how our downtown location enhances learning.
