Learn from this district about:
Prioritizing equitable access to STEM: Recognizing that some groups face barriers to participating in STEM, Wyckoff initiated STEM clubs for girls that promote leadership, risk-taking, and innovation. The district also hosts a weekend coding program to increase access for students without internet or devices at home.
Fostering creativity through a flexible curriculum: The district encourages students to take risks and learn from both success and failure. All primary classes incorporate block play to prime design thinking. Middle school students have open time every day to pursue self-guided, independent projects.
Prioritizing teacher learning: Instead of focusing on professional development once or twice a year, Wyckoff has made teachers’ learning and growth a part of the routine. A four-year teacher mentoring program enhances skills, fosters learning, and provides the opportunity for self-guided research.
Focusing on social-emotional connections daily: At every elementary school, students and staff begin each day with a Responsive Classroom morning meeting to form bonds and develop community.
