Graduation Guidelines Proposed for Class of 2021

Does the definition of a “well-rounded student” depend solely on academic success in the core subjects? Does it depend on students’ abilities to test well? Does it depend on their disposition and character? Many would argue that it is the combination of several aspects of education that lead to a successful graduate, whether that graduate plans to attend college or join the workforce upon graduation.
