Message from the Principal

October 6, 2021

Dear Abington High School Families,

Thank you all for helping us have an incredibly smooth and positive opening to our school year! Now that September has shifted to October, we set our sights on constantly improving the teaching and learning experience for our students and creating strategic plans to implement changes and improvements to our school.

As you may have heard from recent presentations at school committee, Abington High School has adopted a Vision of the Graduate as part of our New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) accreditation process. The Vision of the Graduate, which already has been the basis of planning and decision making at the school, will start to feature more prominently in school presentations, and hopefully serve as a centerpiece and focal point of our students’ education in the years to come.

The Vision of the Graduate has four main components, each with more detailed descriptions for each component. These components can be best described as mindsets and dispositions, suggesting continuous growth and practice in the domains of critical thinking, engaged participant, socially competent contributor, and self-aware individual. Below is a graphic that will feature more prominently in schoolwide publications, as it serves as the basis of future strategic planning. Please click on the graphic below for more detailed descriptions of the Vision of the Graduate.

One of our responsibilities following the NEASC visit, and report is to create a formal communication plan about the Vision of the Graduate, and I hope that this message serves as the first of many about the topic. If after reviewing the Vision of the Graduate, you would like to discuss the mindsets and dispositions further, please do not hesitate to reach out to me at the high school. The school council for Abington High School is the group that will work directly with me to incorporate the Vision of the Graduate into school improvement plans, the program of studies, and the student handbook. Those meetings are open to the public, and I can also include your feedback and information in our discussions.

Thank you again for your time and attention to the Vision of the Graduate, and I look forward to our ongoing cooperation and dialogue to the continuous improvement of Abington High School.

Regards,

Jonathan Bourn, Principal
