Forest Grove Viking House Featured on NPR!
Each year Forest Grove High School construction students build a beautiful single-family home known as the "Viking House," which is then put on the market and sold.
The Viking House is a great example of the power of hands-on learning, dedicated students, enthusiastic teachers, and support from the community, and now NPR is taking notice.

Congratulations to teacher Chris Higginbotham and his class for another successful Viking House and many more to come!
