Laurel School Competencies focus on intellectual, personal, and social and emotional proficiencies that directly support students in lifelong learning. Competency development allows students to master critical skills and content that enables success in personal, social, educational, and career contexts.
Laurel’s Competencies curriculum help students build upon what they know, how they think and what they can do when they encounter unfamiliar or challenging situations. Some competencies are naturally part of learning outcomes while others can be emphasized to enrich learning.
Our teachers use a wide variety of classroom assessment tools and feedback strategies to communicate development and progress. Competencies are not just for school, they are for life. Teachers can help parents to support their child to develop competencies outside of school. This creates a connection to what your child learns at school to the things they do in everyday life.
