The Senior Class Mock Trial project is an annual fall project, and is important to TPS because it teaches and highlights one of its main virtues which is Justice. Students are taught to understand the need for treating others with respect and taking responsibility for their well-being.
Students are presented with a fictional case and students are then assigned roles such as the prosecuting attorneys, defense attorneys, expert witnesses, parties and jurors.
