Profile of a Graduate
Core to Elizabeth School District's work to provide students with career exploration and readiness opportunities is the Profile of a Graduate, which says the school district will, from kindergarten through graduation, provide opportunities for students to develop seven characteristics that will help them thrive at any stage of life – well beyond their time in school.
The seven competencies on which the district is focused are also ways to describe each graduate:
- Empathetic and collaborative.
- Adaptable and resilient.
- Effective communicator.
- Independent learner.
- Academically prepared.
From elementary school through high school, there are different ways those characteristics are taught and encouraged, in age-relevant ways.
