    GRANBY HIGH SCHOOL INSTRUCTIONAL FOCUS

    Schoolwide Instructional Focus:
    Student Engagement 

    Instructional Focus Statement:
    Stakeholders at Granby High School will collaborate to ensure that all students receive engaging and challenging academic experiences, aligned to subject-specific standards.  Student progress will be measured daily through engaging activities, strategic writing tasks, and/or effective communication and justification of answers to help improve critical thinking. 

    Student Statement:
    As Granby Comets we take an active role in our learning so we will reach our full potential. 

    SMARTe Goal:
    By the end of the 2020-2021 school year, ALL Granby students will show at least a 10% growth in critical thinking and communication skills as measured by local, state, and program-specific assessments.
