Parents/guardians can view the NEW Student Vision Profile reports in ParentVUE

New this year, all parent/guardians of students in grades 6-12 recently received a customized Student Vision Profile for their student. This document contains valuable information about planning for life after high school and making the most of their PWCS experience. The information included in this profile is pulled directly from the assessments that students complete in Naviance. If a student did not complete an assessment, they can complete it by logging in to their Naviance account at any time. This helpful resource includes:

  1. Information about students’ personal traits and career interests (from Naviance assessments).
  2. Career plan pathway information.
  3. Suggested action steps for the student and parent/guardian for each post high school path (college, career, military, world of work).

The Student Vision Profile reports can be accessed through ParentVUE and are translated into the parent/guardian’s correspondence language, if that language is on our required translation list. Additional information and feedback surveys about the student vision profile can be accessed from the Student Vision Profile webpage. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to reach out to Director of College, Career, and Student Support, Bekah Schlatter, at [email protected] or Supervisor of College and Career Services, Dr. Anaid Shaver, at [email protected].

PWCS students observing statue at George Mason University campus

English Language Learner students visit George Mason University to learn about postsecondary options

English Language Learner students from Reagan Middle School visited the campus of George Mason University on March 12, 2024. The purpose of the trip was to improve study skills while connecting current academics to postsecondary goals. The students had a walking tour of the campus where they encountered a few starship delivery robots. They walked through a few academic buildings where classes were being held and saw the lab where GMU students can enroll in new skills such as 3D printing, sewing, and tech skills. Students learned about living in a dorm and what social opportunities are provided on campus. Additionally, students attended a presentation on college admissions and what it takes to be a successful candidate for GMU and other colleges/universities.

"Things I noticed is that I saw a lot of people from different countries, I also saw the robots taking the food to the dorms of the students, and I also noticed that the University is super big and space out."

"I didn't know that the statue of George Mason had a meaning behind it. Another thing I noticed is that it is like a small city or village of school. Lastly, I noticed that people were doing many things and worked everywhere in the buildings and there were places as if it was a mall."
