B-CC Students Behind Innovative Museum of Contemporary American Teenagers

B-CC students are part of a group that has created The Museum of Contemporary American Teenagers – a pop-up that will be in Bethesda starting this week. B-CC teacher, Mr. Lopilato nurtured this idea through his anthropology class. The class used “ethnography” to document student ideas and experiences across the region with the goal of using the shared experiences of high school seniors to bridge some of the social and political divide in our country. The students have included much of the content they generated from this work in the museum exhibits.

The museum is open December 7 (RSVP Required), 8th, 9th, 14th, 15th and 16th.

Congrats to Mr. Lopilato and the students on this innovative exhibit

The Foundation took on the charge to help improve school facilities, raise academic rigor, and re-engineer B-CC for the 21st Century.

Foundation Net Revenue 1996-2017 By the summer of 2017, the Foundation has raised more than $2.7 million to meet that challenge and has been investing in academic excellence at B-CC High School for more than two decades. With new programs and a newly modernized facility that was completed in February 2002, B-CC’s enrollment, reflecting community confidence in the school, has been increasing steadily ever since, from 1,076 students in 1995 to 2,074 students in 2017.

The generosity of alumni, parents, faculty, students, businesses, and community members has made it possible for the Foundation to fund innovative academic support programs that promote high academic standards and support success for all B-CC students. In the process, the Foundation helped bring several “firsts” to B-CC High School:
