Portrait of a Graduate
The PCPS Portrait of a Graduate not only provides for the acquisition of rigorous academic content, but it also fosters critical thinking, communication, collaboration, creativity, and other 21st century skills our young people need to thrive in this complex, rapidly changing world.
By providing strategic direction for the redesign of the overall educational experience for students, this collective vision articulates the community’s aspirations for all students, as well as reinvigorates and re-engages students, teachers, and community stakeholders.
The PCPS Instructional Framework helps students gain the skills to be successful by engaging in rich content and experiencing learning through student-centered approaches that foster deeper learning. The development of skills in communication, collaboration, creativity, innovation, critical thinking, problem solving, and digital fluency provides students with a foundation for success.
Additionally, a student-centered instructional approach strengthens a student's investment in his or her own learning, highlighting aspects such as choice, voice, and perseverance — all traits that contribute to the life-long success of an individual.
