Portrait of a Graduate

  • Our Portrait of a Graduate is our district’s vision for the 21st century skills, character traits, and social emotional competencies that we are working to instill in our students by graduation. We believe that embodying and exemplifying these skills are critical for success in college, career, and life.

    During the 2021-2022 school year, more than 100 educators, administrators, students, and families shared their perspective on what students need for success in this rapidly changing and complex world. A total of six competencies were identified and ultimately make up our District 65 Portrait of a Graduate.
