J-Term: Vision Statement

J-Term at WHS provides an opportunity for students to dive deeply into an existing area of interest or explore a new interest during an immersive learning experience of their choosing. J-Term courses are challenging and experiential; they involve, not just inform. Students explore, create, study, think and do. J-Term allows students to experience learning without the external controls that steer much of their education (e.g. classes constrained by bells and achievement measured by a grade). While each J-term course is unique, all course culminate in: 

  • a final product or performance, and/or
  • shared experience, and/or
  • a reflection upon what was learned
