Profile of an Engaged Learner

As part of a commitment to continuous improvement in all aspects of the district, Upper Arlington Schools has unveiled its Profile of an Engaged Learner, an important focus of the whole learning priority in the 2019-2024 Strategic Plan. 

Developed with input from students and all teachers across the district and solidified by a districtwide work group of educators, the Profile of an Engaged Learner reflects our whole child philosophy, as well as our commitments to well-being and diversity, equity and inclusion, by articulating the skills and characteristics that we believe will prepare our students to serve, lead and succeed in Upper Arlington and beyond. 

Solution Seekers

We are SOLUTION SEEKERS when we engage curiously with each other and the world by asking meaningful questions, synthesizing knowledgethinking critically and considering diverse perspectives to generate actionable ideas.

Creative

We are CREATIVE when we take purposeful risks to build connections that allow us to innovate beyond what currently exists.

Skilled Communicators

We are SKILLED COMMUNICATORS when we clearly, thoughtfully and ethically give language to our ideas, listen with the intent to understand, and connect respectfully with others.

Open-Minded and Empathetic

We are OPEN-MINDED and EMPATHETIC when we listen with compassion, and seek to understand a range of perspectives different from our own and give space for all voices to be heard.

We are WELL-BALANCED when we make intentional decisions to recognize, prioritize and enjoy the academicemotionalphysical, and social aspects of our lives.
