Westerville City Schools is committed
to collaborating with all stakeholders
in the creation of our Portrait of a Graduate


During a year filled with unpredictability and challenges, it is clear that students not only need to engage in learning experiences aligned with state standards, but they also need experiences that promote a variety of skills and competencies. The Portrait of a Graduate will provide consistency in the district’s framework that ensures all students have educational experiences that prepare them from their elementary grades through their high school years to continue to effectively learn and contribute beyond graduation. This living document will be used to identify and formulate programming that will serve as our community’s collective vision in our efforts to be the benchmark of excellence in education.


Step 1:  Watch the following presentations about the goals for our district's Portrait of a Graduate

Step 2:  Complete a brief survey where you will be asked to identify the five (5) most critical 21st-century competencies that our students need in order to prepare them to be effective lifelong learners and contributors within our complex, rapidly changing world.

Please complete the survey by May 12th and
thank you in advance for your participation!
