I am proud to lead our curriculum and instruction processes for the West York Area School District. Our academic program is regularly under review and consideration to ensure our academic program is meeting the needs of every learner. You will find throughout your academic career in the West York Area School District that our leaders emphasize learning through experiences, encouraging curiosity, and inquiry to develop citizens who are eager learners. Families can be assured to know that all of our instructional practices are research-based and supported by the brightest minds in the field.
We look to develop students who are flexible and adaptable and be able to thrive in class and through online learning environments. A common theme around our program goals are to develop thinkers and problem solvers, both academically and emotionally in order to graduate World Class Citizens who will be successful in their post-secondary careers.
Our instructional program is focused around several core beliefs
Learning is Social in Nature
Learning happens with concepts are introduced in an authentic context
Learning happens through reflection and iterations.
We will continue to prioritize learning experiences over the memorization of facts that you can “Ask Siri” or Google in order to prepare students to graduate World Class Citizens. We are West York Proud and are working to prepare students for any opportunity.
