Highlander High School’s model for personalization is built on the concept of a Graduation Roadmap. Thanks to the strategic integration of technology, this type of personalization is possible; driven by student needs, strengths, talents and interests, the Graduation Roadmap will offer every student multiple pathways for earning graduation credits. Some pathways include face-to-face coursework at Highlander, the Community College of Rhode Island, or another secondary or post-secondary partner; online coursework or other digital partners; and an Expanded Learning Opportunities (ELOs) pathway that allows students to build credit-bearing courses centered on inquiry-based projects.
While all pathways will be part of each student’s high school experience, students – along with their advisors, parents, and teachers – will determine how to best leverage each pathway to achieve their goals. The entire process will be overseen by the Director of Multiple Pathways.
