The Vision of the Graduate serves as a guide for work and decision-making at Longmeadow High School.

WHAT ARE SCHOOL-WIDE EXPECTATIONS (SWE) FOR STUDENT LEARNING?
The school-wide expectations are observable and measurable skills identified by Longmeadow High School faculty and administration; they are the priority learning goals we hope to see manifested in all of our students. These learning expectations are related to the Massachusetts State Frameworks and important learning goals of our community. The realization of these school-wide learning expectations serves to demonstrate essential learning identified in our mission statement.
WHAT ARE SCHOOL-WIDE RUBRICS?
The phrase “school-wide rubric” means that an established rubric will be used to assess the learning demonstrated by all students in the school. In the case of a school-wide learning expectation that cuts across a number of disciplines, such as writing, the use of the same rubric to assess writing skills across the school’s curriculum serves to ensure the consistent reinforcement of skills across a number of disciplines.
Read and interpret written and oral information.
CIVIC AND SOCIAL EXPECTATIONS
Recognize and respect cultural similarities and differences.
Participate in green initiatives
PRIORITY EXPECTATIONS BY DEPARTMENT
The use of school-wide rubrics to assess the level of achievement of a school’s targeted and valued skills ensures that students and their parents know what is expected of them and know what they need to do to improve. www.neasc.org
The primary responsibility grid is included below and indicates which academic departments and courses are responsible for reporting progress. By virtue of a student’s schedule and required graduation responsibilities, students are exposed to each of the SWE’s throughout their high school years. Additionally, teachers provide qualitative comments for students each marking period and after each semester. Guidance Counselors, administrators and teachers are available to meet with students and parents to discuss academic progress and success.
