Congratulations to the November students of the month at Washburn School in Ponce, Puerto Rico. Students of the Month
Every month since our establishment in the year 2003 we congratulate the students that were selected student of the month and that have demonstrated that they are striving for excellence at Washburn 🦅 . We will be recognizing them tomorrow November, 30, 2022 with an award. Students who won Student of the Month from September to November will also be having Pizza before the end of the semester.
We have a criteria for evaluating students that includes voting from all staff and faculty members in a rubric that includes Washburn's goals, observations of their academic work, classroom behavior, alignment with Washburn's values in and outside the classroom, and their positive impact to our overall community. The teachers who vote and nominate fill out the rubric anonymously through a point system that is added up.
The teachers and faculty who nominate and assign points to the students are always anonymous and they use a rubric of over 25 different criteria that demonstrate Washburn values. It means that all teachers and even administration staff help pick the winners.

Profile of a Washburn School Student
Students at Washburn School have different cultures, backgrounds, belief,religions, and nationalities, yet they all share an eagerness to learn. Year after year, Washburn School students’ standardized test scores place them among the highest-achieving schools in the island. This is no surprise, as teachers and students have a highly personalized way of interacting. From the moment you come to Washburn you notice a different culture and environment. Each child is well known by all the teachers and other students throughout the school. Teachers work with the staff and the parents to ensure that students are academically challenged, but not unnecessarily overwhelmed
When you meet a Washburn student you notice that they have received a premier education where they develop a high sense of integrity, honesty, fairness, justice, natural curiosity, personal commitment and a love for learning and achievement. Children leave Washburn as young men and women who have a love of learning that will stay with them for their entire lives. They have a broad range of interests and openness to new ideas. They are multilingual communicators, risk takers and critical thinkers.
