Criteria for Excellence
To help guide our learning and projects, teachers created a set of critical skills and understandings that we want students to demonstrate at Marblehead Charter. We call these skills and understandings the Criteria for Excellence. Using these Criteria, teachers align their units, projects, and assessments to these skills. Then students produce connected work and evaluate their progress in these Criteria over their five years at Marblehead Charter. It is another way for us to emphasize that learning isn’t just a moment-to-moment event but something that students cultivate over the years.
