WSC has hosted three Showcase School visits this year, with a fourth coming up in May.   We were one of 24 schools throughout New York City to be selected for the Showcase Schools Program, which is designed to promote collaborative learning through the sharing of exemplary practices within the schools.  Our school’s learning focus areas have been student portfolios and student reflection on a body of work.  One recent visitor to our school remarked:  “I believe I have developed a clearer understanding of how student ownership can truly come alive in a classroom. I was able to ask questions (I felt super welcomed!) and deepen my understanding.”
