Student Learning Expectations

The faculty of Shepherd Hill Regional High School and the communities of Dudley and Charlton have identified 21st Century Learning and Civic Expectations for our students. All students are given multiple opportunities to meet each of these expectations during their time at Shepherd Hill, and students are assessed using rubrics that were developed by a representative sample of the Shepherd Hill faculty. Individual students’ level of performance on the academic expectations is reported on the 2nd and 4th quarter progress reports. Achievement of the civic and social expectation is reported on the 1st and 3rd quarter progress reports. The rubrics used to assess students, as well as graphs that illustrate school-wide performance on each of the expectations can be found at the following link:
