VISION OF THE GRADUATE and CASEL


Click above to learn more.

The Longmeadow High School Vision of the Graduate is a holistic description of the skills, understandings, and dispositions that students should strive to attain by graduation. These competencies should be embedded into learning activities and experiences across multiple disciplines. The Vision of the Graduate serves as a guide for work and decision-making at Longmeadow High School.

Throughout the 2019-2020 school year, Longmeadow High School educators, in conjunction with community stakeholders, identified six priority competencies that are critical to ensuring students are prepared for future success.

CASEL The Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning

In addition to embedding the Vision of the Graduate competencies into the LHS student experience, LHS also embeds Social and Emotional skill sets into student learning and reflection, in all classes but specifically and formally through our Health and Wellness curriculum. LHS and LPS have embraced the CASEL (The Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning) competencies as the framework for this focus. The five main skills sets/competencies of CASEL are:

  • Self-Management (Managing emotions and behaviors to achieve one’s goals)

  • Self-Awareness (Recognizing one’s emotions and values as well as one’s strengths and challenges)

  • Responsible Decision-Making (Making ethical, constructive choices about personal and social behavior)

  • Relationship Skills (Forming positive relationships, working in teams, dealing effectively with conflict)

  • Social Awareness (Showing understanding and empathy for others)
