PANEL DISCUSSION – VOICES FROM HEALTHY HIGH SCHOOL CULTURES
Wayfinders is an afterschool tutoring and mentoring program that has boosted graduation rates for students disadvantaged by poverty from 52% to 86%. The Met School pairs each student with a single teacher advisor through all four years of high school to develop projects and internships built around their interests. With a near perfect on-time graduation rate, the Met School has become so popular the school division has opened a second location.
Educators and students from these two award-winning programs will share their insights on how high schools can focus on persistent relationships and real engagement to bolster student success and well-being.
