The Stamford High School partnership of administrators, faculty, and staff believes that all students can learn. We believe that we must provide a rigorous, relevant curriculum for all students that promotes critical and creative thinking and works to engage all students regardless of their varied abilities and backgrounds.  To do so, we must give students multiple opportunities to succeed in the high school experience as well as set high expectations for all students and hold them, and ourselves, accountable.  We must also foster and maintain a culture that focuses on the importance of academics and routinely celebrates academic achievement.  It is our responsibility to model life-long learning, civic engagement, and respect and tolerance for diversity and for each other.

The Stamford High School faculty has created the following 21st Century Learning Expectations and will work together to ensure that all students master these skills at a proficient level (or above) by the time they graduate in preparation for college and/or the workplace. Students will have the skills and knowledge necessary to:

 Academic Expectations:

1. Read and understand complex texts from all content areas, including visual texts, in order to extract information from them.

2. Write cohesively and cite evidence when synthesizing information from multiple texts.

3. Use critical thinking skills to analyze, interpret, and solve multi-step real-world problems.

4. Conduct research to build and present knowledge individually or in groups.

Social Expectation:

5. Develop an understanding of a healthy intellectual, physical, social, and emotional lifestyle.

Civic Expectation:

6. Develop an understanding of the meaning of citizenship.
